Windows 7: Windows 7 User profiles issue - Shows logging off after entering corru

Windows 7 User profiles issue - Shows logging off after entering corru

This issue has become specific as fixing one problem led to the other:
1) I deleted ntuser.* files while working in linux as they had ugly looking file extensions and I thought they are temporary files.
2) I started getting the message "The Group Policy Client service failed the logon. Access denied". This was the only user profile on my windows part.
I started looking on the Internet for solutions. I stumbled upon a solution to remove the sid field from the Registry ENtry "HLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList"
3) After this, when I login to the profile it shows "logging off" screen instantaneously.
My Present situation:
1) I can logon to this profile in Safe Mode.
2) I can make a new user profile and login to that profile in normal mode(Non safe mode).
However, I get old and trivial user settings and my stored passwords are gone.
I desperately want to revive my earlier User Profile. Please give some suggestion based on my situation.

Why would you expect Win7 to function correctly when you set about ruining it like that? Did you even create a System Restore point before acting so recklessly?

That's the first thing I'd check, working back before you ruined your install to a working configuration if System Restore will even run from the disk System Recovery Options .

If that fails, try SFC /SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot
from the Win7 disk or Repair CD System Recovery Options Command Line.

You may need to rescue your files and do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which will assure you get and keep a perfect install as long as you stick with only the tools and methods in the tutorial.
