Performed an automatic update about 2 days ago and when I had come back home, everything booted fine as usual, however, whenever clicking on any user profile (I have 3; 2 admins and 1 basic profile without a password), the screen goes black for half a second and instead of being prompted to input my password, I'm still at the screen of user profiles. This happens when I try clicking any of them.
I've already tried:
- booting with last known good configuration
- memory check (no problems detected)
- system restore via "repair your computer" option
None of these actions solved the problem.
Furthermore, the problem still occurs even in Safe Mode. I click any profile and I'm still sent back to the same screen. So there is absolutely no way (that I know of at this point) for me to actually log in any profile and perform any further action no matter what mode I'm in. Startup repair also does not detect any problems.
I've gone through pages of search engine results and have not found any problems similar to mine. Most people usually get some "user profile error" message or are stuck on a black screen. I'm only sent back to the list of user profiles when clicking on any of them even in safe mode. I am completely baffled at this point and would like to know if anyone else has encountered and resolved this kind of problem before.
