XP->Vista Upgrade, now can't use old accounts

    I had four accounts on my XP Professional system. After upgrading, I cannot
    access any of the four *unless* I log into Safe Mode. From Safe Mode, all
    four function normally. Without Safe Mode, all four immediately shift from
    "loading your personal settings" to "logging out"--and right back to the
    choose-your-login-id panel.

    The Administrator account, which I finally (after four hours) was able to
    make visible on the login page, can be used to login even outside of Safe
    Mode. I have not seen any problems with devices, display modes, or other
    clearly visible components.

    How can I diagnose the login problem further, in order to restore use of my
    old accounts?
