Zapp Mate have you got an activation code for that install because somewhere along the line it seems to me whoever refurbed the machine may have got a little "sidetracked".

Now if you have the code - usually on that sticker with a set of numbers what you could do I to reinstall using this preferably after wiping that drive. (In the tutorial the sticker will change for the different windows just us hat you have got) .
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

have a read at least I know it is painful but the media will be the freshest you can get and may solve your problem but if you do go down this track back up any data and only choose the ISO for the installed version of Windows.

slaved the drive to another 7 machine, took ownership of all the associated files and nuked them.
purged the registry.
pulled the default user profile/folder/folders from the other machine [free of windows mail] and installed them in the target machine.

all done.
