Do you by any chance have a Hewlett Packard printer installed? I've discovered that software supplied can be a problem, interfering with administrator user accounts.

It's also possible that your user account has been corrupted. You could fix that by starting in Safe Mode and using the default Admin account. Once logged in with that, create a new administator account, then restart as normal but log in with the newly created account.

If all is well, delete your original user account.
