    Rob,

    Do you have a retail installation DVD/USB or recovery drive to boot from to enter Safe Mode or open a command prompt at boot instead like in the note box at the top of this tutorial?

    Usually, once you have the "retail" installation DVD inserted, you would restart the computer and press a key when prompted to boot from the DVD instead of Windows.

    Are you able to click on Troubleshoot in your first screenshot above to continue to follow OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to boot to Safe Mode?

    Advanced "Startup Settings" - Boot to in Windows 8

    Once in Safe Mode, see if you are able to continue to enable the built-in Administrator account like in step A in the note box under step 1 Option One in the tutorial on the first page.

    Rob,

    Are you dual booting, or only have one Windows installed on the PC?

    While you are in the command prompt at boot, are you able to do Option Two below to enable the built-in Administrator account?
    If you are able to enable the built-in Administrator account, then see if you are able to sign in to it to be able to do the tutorial to fix the user profile error.
