  1. I have a Windows 7 computer that has 2 user accounts, mine and my brothers. I was on task manager and accidentally
    deleted winlogon.exe while on my account and now I can't access it. My brother's account works fine and when I try to switch users it only shows his account. Any way to get my account back?​

    You can try setting up another account as Administrator. See if that works, Not really sure if that will work. I think once you delete them there gone. I maybe wrong, So hold on a little maybe someone here will know.
