I'm starting to see "CORRUPT PROFILES" on Vista. (see google) But the lesson here is to always have a spare account.

well there is no other account, so no possibility to start
is it possible to restore the system?

Even Vista has boot options.

Let's review those.

Here's your pick of articles but remember I'm working in a vacuum here. You elected to share only a few details such as it runs Vista. No make, model or longer story so I have to guess that the maker and their modified OEM Windows Install allowed those other boot options. I could guess wrong.

Booting safe mode may let you use system restore.
