I can't Log on to Computer (even in Safe Mode)...Please Help

I am unable to log on to my computer. It pulls up the log in screen, and i type in my password, and it shows my background, but it never pulls anything up. It then just logs off and puts me back to the log in screen.
Sometimes it doesnt even show the background....just "logging on" and then immediately "logging off".
I have tried to run in safe mode, and the same thing happens. I tried with Administrator and my login. And it shows background, and then logs off.
I probably screwed this all up yesterday, because my computer (being 5.5 years old) was running really slow. So i read on the microsoft website to do defrag, cleandisk, and delete AutoRun items. I think when i started deleting AutoRun items.....(even though it was only 10 or so)....i caused this mess.
Let me know if anyone has any ideas, or if i am just going to have to do System Restore. I am not TOO concerned to do system restore, because the few files that i use are saved to a zip drive, but all the setting and stuff would be a pain to re-do.
