I don't know the answer then. Have you tried Safe Mode yet? If it works from there you can at least start diagnosing, or create a new account to test further with.

Failing that, if it were me I'd probably try a bootable CD next. Run a utility to show you the list of user accounts on the machine (something like @ctive Password Changer). This would at least let you confirm which accounts still exist.

Another option is to download the trial of Microsoft DaRT CD for Windows 7. Boot off that and run a System Restore to a date before the problem started.
