    Corrupted Admin Account (Mine)


    A strange thing started happening a month ago. When I logged into my Admin account, it went through the normal log in process and when it finished my screen went completely dark. The same thing happened to another password protected account, but my wife's non admin account which is not password protected still worked. The only account available now is my wife's account. Since I had my admin passwords I tried making other user accounts. They would work only briefly, if at all, then blank out.

    I tried moving all my files to her desktop. I was only partially successful. At one point I could see my account in the C:\Users folder, but today I couldn't. Oddly enough I could see my account in control panel > Users. I took one drastic step, which was to delete the account. I chose the Keep Files option which indicated it would move all my files to the on her desktop. When it was done, there was no such folder and of course the account is completely gone now. I have moved whatever files were I could find to any external hard drive. I've already bought another computer and will create new accounts and restore the files there. Not sure I am asking any questions. I trying to move forward, but any comments would be welcomed.

    Thanks

    Paul
