    When I start my laptop, I get to the screen where I can select a profile to begin with, but when I select my profile, Windows tries to start and then automatically logs me off and I end up back at the profile selection screen. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? I've tried starting in safe mode, but I get to the same spot every time. Thanks in advance for anyone that might have suggestions.

    I suggest you try Safe Mode again but this time as Administrator then go Start>Control Panel>User Accounts and either delete your own account or at least change the password. Reboot in Normal mode and re-post if this doesn't change the situation.

    Thanks for trying, but even in admin mode, it won't load things for me. It tries, and then automatically logs off and brings me back to the first screen.
