Hi,

I cannot access complete my user account on windows. I have restarted my computer but its still the same. It only gives me my desktop background with the cursor and nothing else. Please help.

If you have nothing to loss on your user account, access safe mode again and click on the Administrator account. Then Start > Control Panel > User Accounts > Click the "user account" which has the problem > Change an account > Delete the account. Next, create the user account. From the User Accounts > Create a new account and follow to complete the wizard. After restarting the computer, it will load properly.

You're welcome. I'm just adding a screenshot on how was it done.
