Please take a look in My Computer, Properties, Advanced System Settings, Advance Tab, and click on User Profiles. Delete any unused or unneeded profiles (NOT your own profile or Default). Close out, shut down and see if the problem is still there when you start up.

Try Windows Start Up Repair with the Windows 7 DVD. Here is a Seven Forums Tutorial for this.

Sorry, I interpreted "right back" as the system starting. My apologies.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If the Startup Repair won't work, and nothing else you tried will work, you need to back up the system (boot from a bootable DVD and copy backups to a USB key (or keys), format and install Windows 7 again.

You can perform repairs offline, that is worth a try. Please google for
Sfc /scannow offline
to find the procedure.
