Windows 7: Can't login to Windows 7. Sends me back to login screen every time.

Windows 7 Home Premium
Can't login to Windows 7. Sends me back to login screen every time.

This has never happened before. When I turn on the computer, the two accounts show up (both administrator) but whenever I click either of them, the screen just shows the Windows 7 login screen for a while without any text then sends me back to the account selection. This happens when I select either of the accounts, one of them also has a password but that doesn't show up either.

(also don't know a lot about computers ;-; )

EDIT : When I turned on the computer, it went through updates where it says Starting Windows with the Windows logo. Maybe this helps.

Same thing happened to me since the update yesterday.

( just to clarify Is this the same problem ? I posted a video Windows Error - YouTube )

It is similar but instead of the screen going black or flashing, it loads just like it usually would but without any text (e.g. Welcome). After a while it sends me back to where I originally was

Windows 7 Home 64bit

I'm having the same problem. Just started happening recently. I've tired system restore and it fails every time. I also can't get safe mode with command prompt to load. It just goes to a normal windows based safe mode and I can't login there just like on a normal boot to non-safe more. Sends me right back to login screen. Any ideas?

can't login to an account, brings back to the login screen
when I try to login to either of the accounts, it flashed for a second and then goes back to the login screen. I did an offline defender scan and remove a few adware, but I don't think they were the cause. Is there any way I could monitor the login process and see what's failing.
