    greetings friends

    I've had my laptop for around 7 months with scarcely any problems. Yesterday I was on my administrator account as usual and everything was running fine, I did no changes nor any downloads. Today I tried to log onto my User Account, which is the Admin. and I received the user profile service service failed to logon notice, out of nowhere. When I signed on to my fathers account whose is also on my pc, it allowed me to with no problems. When I try to configure the Administrative or Account settings, after typing my password, no action takes place. When I try to download the Fix it program from Windows 7 it doesn't allow me due to the need for the Admin. password, which I type and no action takes place as well. I tried Safe + Command mode and net user administrator/active:no to deactivate my Admin. password. Didn't work. I have several files in my account I need for school, work, etc. I was trying to make the other User Account the Admin thereby freeing my User account of this problem, no luck. When I log on in Safe Mode it allows me to log on to my Admin User. I tried restoring settings to the latest date that appeared, no luck. Someone pleaseee help I have absolutely no idea what to do.

    Tap F8 when you turn the PC on or restart; when you get the Windows boot menu there should be some recovery options, I think near the bottom of the page. Try a System Restore to the most recent date prior to this problem.
