    Other user login Windows 8.1 - Cannot login


    I've had several issues after installing my Windows 8.1 64 bit.... I tried installing my motherboard drivers shortly after upgrading my Windows OS and lost connection to the internet. I tried reinstalling the drivers and got stuck in this infinite loop of the BIOS... then I got stuck in an infinite loop of reinstalling/refreshing my PC from the Windows install disk... I finally was able to go into Regedit and delete a bunch of things and now finally I am able to get to the login user screen but my original login doesn't appear. I don't know how to login ... my original user name and password doesn't work.... i need help
