That big long id you see listed there, that is the one for your account? CMC is that your admin account?

I am assuming that user "CRK" is currently created as a user when this screenshot was taken? If so, the main problem is that an SID is not even being created in the registry for this username. Without it, you cannot delete it and thus the solutions posted thus far you are right do not help you, though i do commend all who are trying to help!

Here is something you can try as I do not see that you have done it here.

  • Delete the problematic user account and then restart the computer.
  • Insert the Windows 7 disc and then boot to CD.
  • When presented, click on Repair Computer and select the option for Startup repair.
  • It's going to take awhile to complete, but after that, restart the computer and attempt to create the user account and see if your issues still persist.
If they do, then you may have to resign yourself to the fact that something went wonky when you installed 7 originally, but you are just finding out. I would copy your files and folders at that point and look at another clean install.

Thanks for your input.

As suggested, I did delete the non working account i.e. crk and went with Startup Repair via setup disk. No errors were detected. I am still unable to work with new account.

I guess the only option I am left is to go with clean install, oh boy that's lot of work.

Thanks

Sorry to hear that it's come to this. One thing though. Before you backup your current profile I would go and hide hidden files and folders. You don't want to copy back in whatever is jacking things up again. Good luck and let us know how it worked. Also I suggest downloading killdisk for free and running that format over your HD then do clean install.

I haven't had experience with "killdisk" will the "Clean All" command in the tutorial at the link below do the same thing, just curious.

Well presumably he's killing his primary partition. I don't know if that wouldn't bring a BSOD if he's in Windows doing what you are proposing or not.

Killdisk is something he can burn to a disk, boot to it and nail it from there.

You can use it in a command window at boot before the install, "clean all" writes zeroes to the entire disk.

See the "Note" in the tutorial.

Oh yeah well that. I thought you meant nuke it from disk management.
