yes boot up into safe mode with command prompt select administrator account and type the following command
net user then press enter this brings up a list users on your pc then type net user ("then the user you are typing to log on as") and then enter check to see if the user account is expired after that type net accounts then press enter and check the net account formation and make sure you have the wright times to log on to the accounts and the account is not inactive at all then after that if all is correct and not disabled then i will tell you how to fix this using regedit
