Windows 7: Windows 7 freezes during log in after creating multiple accounts

Windows 7 freezes during log in after creating multiple accounts

For more than a year, my system had just one user ie my personal user. Since the past few days, I've created an account for my dad as well and I'm facing some problems now.

Since I've created an account for him, I cannot log in to my account on the first attempt. After typing in the password to log in, I just see a message saying "Welcome". I have to power off my laptop, reboot it and then log in again.

Is it a common problem and is a solution available? Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Facts are, problem since new account.Account can be corrupted. Delete account and set up a new one. It should be ok now.
If not
Try a clean boot and see it that can solve the problem.
