You know your user name. If no password was configured just hit enter on a blank field.

Try Safe Mode, if it will let you into safe mode, do a system restore to before the problem began.
If it will not, you can run a System Restore from a Windows 7 Repair Disk and access your restore points on your hard drive. System Restore will repair system files and return the preferences and registry to the way they were.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
