When powering on, laptop boots up, shows Dell logo with Windows 7 Professional, "Welcome" screen, then logon. After entering password and hitting "Enter", screen goes to blank, with working cursor showing. Worked fine until I loaded Adobe Flash Player (which didn't load completely), then uninstalled some applications that loaded with Adobe that I didn't want.

Can you restore the computer to a date and time before the problem started?
I can' t get past the Logon screen.

did you try "Safe Mode" (press F8 when you see the Windows logo?
I haven't tried that yet. I will try today.
I decided that since the laptop was fairly new to me (Dell Return), and I hadn't really loaded anything to it yet, I just reset back to the factory settings. That seemed to solve my issues.

Thank you for your help. It did help me get to the utilities screen where I could reimage the laptop. This time, I will create a restore point and system backup.
