log on error after allowing remote access

by stlorena / November 1, 2009 11:15 AM PST

I had somebody remotely access my computer in order to create a new partition for my hard-drive. Now every time I try to log on, Windows will load up normally up to the point of the blue screen, where it spends a lot of time (10 minutes) reading Windows is starting up...
Once the screen-saver kicks in, I can move the mouse, which is the point when I get an error message " the system could not log you on. Make sure your user name and domain are correct, then type your password again". I hit ok, and I click on my account (the only account there is, which is also not locked under a password and an admin account too), and Windows runs its normal uploading course.

What's causing that error message and what can I do to get rid of it? Thew waiting time until I actually get to the error is also very long.

Thank you in advance!

Research this as if it was a corrupt profile. Google these words:

VISTA CORRUPT PROFILE

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
