    User account corruption can be difficult or impossible to fix. As you have other accounts that work, Windows per se is not corrupted. Trying to fix things for one account runs the risk of affecting the others.

    Bro, same thing happened to me multiple times. The only actual fix is to make a new account and just manually transfer over your files. I know it's an absolute pain in the ass and makes me angry at Microsoft but it's the only fix.

    Once you are settled into your new user account don't **** with anything too much. That's my best advice.

    Yeah that seems like the only solution. I'm still kinda reluctant to do it because I don't know if it's gonna affect my iPhone backup, so for now that's enough to keep me from migrating files. :/

    Could you explain your concern?

    Well, my main concern that's kinda keeping me from migrating my files over is my iPhone backup, which is tied into this specific iTunes library on the corrupted user account...I don't mind having to re-sync the music library over again, but there's some app data on the phone that I'm not entirely sure will remain on the phone when I sync to the new library on the other user's a bit fickle, but reeeeally don't want to lose that app data, if it's avoidable at all.
