Administrative Login Only In Safe Mode Possible

About a month ago I used a 'cleaning program' (CCcleaner) on my laptop. After a restart I found the save data of many games deleted, some games (Civilization) did not run at all anymore. Yet the worst was, that I could only log into my admin account in safe mode. At this time the guest account did still work normal, so I played my games there. Yet since a few days I am now also not able to log into my guest account in normal mode. I have to use safe mode there too.

I tried: system restore, which failed with an error message. New installation of Windows 7, which failed, because you can't install anything in safe mode. Opening new user profiles, which failed, because the 'button' does simply not react.

Is there a way to get my admin rights for normal use back?

Registry cleaners are a BAD idea.

Did you take a backup, from within CCleaner?

If not, you might get some joy if you boot from the W7 disk and do a repair.

I've never had a problem with C Cleaner. Norton 360 has done some terrrible stuff but not C Cleaner. I'm sure I've been asked at start up if I'd like to do a system restore. And I wasn't aware you couldn't do it in safe mode.

Have you actually set any restore points to return to?
