Windows 7: Cant start Win7, user account deleted?

If you can't access the missing User Files in Safe mode as suggested, and there are no Restore points or Startup issues to repair (try running Startup Repair repeatedly no matter what it says), then I'd wipe the HD to clean reinstall.

I'd try one last time with the WIn7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD to copy out files using this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

The user profile folder is listed in C:\Users
Stuff appears on the desktop now too in Safe Mode, but I cant log in using the username of Administrator and no password. In safe mode I cannot enable the Administrator account or even create another user account.
Im getting an error saying something about the profile service service is disabled or something like that.

and run "sfc/ scannow" to repair any broken system files

if it will let you run a Repair Install in Safe Mode, I'd do that too.
