Please try following any of the methods provided below to resolve the issue:
Method 1: Check whether your profile is accidentally deleted. To see whether your profile is still there, go to the drive where you have installed your operating system. Open the folder- Documents and settings. Check whether the folder with your name or the one you have given for your profile is existing in this folder. If this does not exist, you cannot log in to your system in your name.
Method 2: Next Option is to check to check whether security option has been changed for the profile folder. To check this, Open the folder- Documents and settings from administrator login or a different login with administrator privileges, right click on the folder, open properties window and go to Security Option. Click on your name in the user field and click on edit for editing its security options.
Choose Full control in the field for permissions for authenticated users. Click on Apply-OK. Now log out from administrator login and try to login in your profile. In case the folder- Documents and Settings is hidden, you may have to go to Menu-Tools-Folder options-View- and mark the check box-Show all hidden files.
Method 3: Try creating a new profile
Start the computer and press F8 before the windows logo appears.
On the Advanced Boot Options screen, choose Safe Mode, and press Enter on the keyboard.
