Windows 7: Can't open netplwiz or control userpasswords2

Since you are seeing a "Other User" option on the log on screen, you might see if this is the issue in the tutorial below to sort it.
Logon Screen - Fix Showing Only "Other User" and Last Logged On User
If you are unable to do what's in the tutorial, then see if you may be able to do so from the built-in Administrator account. If you area unable to enable it normally, then you could try to do so at boot.
