    When I try to change the account type for ANY of the accounts on my desktop PC from admin to standard, I can no longer login to that particular account unless I make it admin again.

    What happens is, after clicking the account the "Welcome" screen appears, then after a short moment, instead of logging me into that account, it returns me back to the account screen, as if nothing ever happened.

    I did scans with Malwarebytes and MSE, didn't help. I also tried to repair potentially corrupt system files by typing "sfc /scannow" into Command Prompt. That didn't help either. My laptop has Windows 7 too and doesn't appear to have this problem.

    Desktop specs:
    CPU: Intel Core i7-870 @ 2.93GHz (4 cores, 8 threads)
    RAM: 6GB DDR3
    GPU: AMD Radeon 5570, 2GB GDDR3
    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1
