  1. it works if you can get into the command prompt(which i had to find another way 2). No matter which Safe mode i chose it still went straight to the login screen....but after i figured my way into the comand prompt this did work...but i deleted the user file, thinking that would help, and now it won't even i'm trying system restore, if that doesn't work i am just gonna do a fresh install...fuck windows 7, i'm sticking with Vista!
