Is the user unable to login right after bootup?
or trying to resume access, using switch user might be the way to see that the user is already loged in and in this situation the session can be resumed.

Presumably, there is no other user with which access gain be gained.

ubcd has tools to reset passwords.

Hello,

Is this a local user account or a domain account?  If it is just a local user account, you might have to use a special boot disc that can reset the Windows 7 password.

If you have a Windows 7 setup disc, you can boot off of it and choose Repair computer, then get to command prompt.  The link below has a tutorial for this:

If you do not have a Windows 7 DVD, then you'll probably have to make one from an ISO or download a 3rd party tool.  The video below shows how to reset with a 3rd party tool:
