I think my Windows install has become corrupt

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I really don't even know where to begin on this one, but THIS THREAD I made prior has all the background.

I have been having a lot of problems today because my wireless only works when I am logged into my desktop under my account with admin privileges(plugged into router off modem). My laptops can only connect when my desktop is logged into that account. When another user on my desktop logs in, the wireless goes out.

I therefore went through a lot of trouble thinking it was a router issue, but because it only happened under certain windows users, it couldn't be the router.

I deleted the other user account on the desktop (sig rig) after backing up personal files, and when I restarted and re-created the second account profile, I get the following upon clicking the account name from the main windows 7 startup screen:

A quick flash of "preparing your desktop" and then straight to "logging out" and then it sends me back to the main startup screen. I can only login to my main account now. This is very bad indeed. Could my windows install have become corrupted overnight?

Can anyone tell me where to go from here, because I'd really rather not have to reinstall windows. All I have is an upgrade disk that I already have used on this comp and another...so I am pretty sure I am out of licenses. I do have a month old acronis complete disk image I could try. I am gonna give that a shot and see what happens.

I'm pretty sure the upgrade disk is just the same as the normal windows disk. I've done multiple installs with the upgrade disk on my old computer. I'm pretty sure you mean the windows 7 upgrade disk right?

Acronis actually managed to do its job perfectly. Recovered to last months point in time and everything is safe. I think that the issue was to do with an optional windows update that messed up my network somehow. Corrupted download or something. Anyway, problem solved.
