The probem with your system is that, your
"userinit.exe" file is corrupt and needs to be
replaced. It is possible that it became corrupt or
infected and an antivirus program that you use
removed it from your system.
So what you need to do is:
Get An Original Windows CD,
Insert it into your CDROM, and restart your system.
While your system is restarting, go into the system
setup/BIOS, and select the boot sequence to boot
from the CD.
Reboot your system again and let the Windows CD
Once you get to the first menu,
Press R for recovery console. Select the OS you
want to boot in (usually C:\windows), and enter your
If you don't have one or can't remember if you do, just
Then, once you get the C:\Windows prompt, type:
D: or E: or whichever is the letter for your CD drive
where the Windows OS disk is located.
Once you are there, assuming it is E: , type:
CD I386 and Press [enter];
You should now be in E:\I386>.
EXPAND userinit.ex_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32
and press [enter].
Remember that there is a space between the
userinit.ex_ and the C:\Windows\system32.
This will put a new copy of userinit.exe into your
windows system32 directory.
Next, type EXIT and press [enter]
Your System will reboot automatically and you would
be able to logon to your desktop.
Try this out and let me know how it goes.
Hope this helps.

I'd suggest booting into Safe Mode (press F8 after the POST information is finished on bootup) and then you should see an option for Administrator. If you can sign in successfully there, go to Control Panel and create a new account under User Accounts. Boot normally after that and see if you can sign in the new account.
Two questions: 1) is this XP or Vista? and 2) did you recently make any significant changes to the software (namely try to change the Certificate of Authenticity)? If what I suggested works, I'd say boot into Safe Mode again and then run System Restore for Windows. Set the system back to about a week ago and try logging in normally.
