Windows 7: Locked out of my Win 7 desktop after updates

Locked out of my Win 7 desktop after updates

Can anyone please help, I plugged in my second tower PC yesterday (Acer Aspire) Windows 7
there were loads of updates there (although it was last updated 2/2016) and it took ages.
Now the problem is since doing these updates is, I am locked out of my machine cannot get
the desktop to log on or use the PC.
This is what I get:

With a box OK
if I click on this OK it just logs off and comes back with:
My pic in a box
With Acer underneath it

Ease of access box left Switch off box right
At the bottom of page

Bearing in mind that the Win 7 PC is not up and running and I have to disconnect this
Win 10 PC and install the Win 7 to make any changes, any help to resolve this will be much
Many thanks Peter.

Hello Peter mate can you get into safe mode?? If so I would suggest a system restore to before those updates and I am also wondering if you are intending to upgrade to 10 if so then take my advice clone the original drive and upgrade using the clone - it will save you a great deal of grief if things go south.

Just recently having problems with not being able to open icons on desktop. I can on initial startup, but after opening one here or there things go south.
