Reboots like installing new Windows after update

May 15, 2014 at 12:14:35
Specs: Windows 8.1, 4GB
Win 8.1

Every time after a major automatic update through Windows Updater, after rebooting, the computer starts the same process as the last steps when you install a fresh version of Windows 8, that is, you see the multicolor screens one after the other with the message that it's installing your apps, then don't turn off the computer etc. After the sequence is over, I'm taken to a blank screen and I have to log out and in to my profile. It seems, that after the update I'm being logged out.
I only have one user with the computer and I turned off the guest account.
Also and It may be related,Can't create a new user account
I created a new user account with administrator priviliges as usual, but the new account does not show when I log off and then in or try change accounts. It also isn't listed on the upper right corner of the start page.
Basically even though I see it in other accounts, I can't switch to it.
I turned on Guest Account and also I can't choose it.

Please advise

Sounds like a repair is needed.

Repair your computer in Windows 8 and 8.1

Its usually best to make the first account you log in as as your admin account and then add your general user account after it is basically set up, all available updates are made, and antivirus program is installed.

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