Windows 7: "Preparing windows for first time use" message everytime I boot.

22 Feb 2012   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
"Preparing windows for first time use" message everytime I boot.

Hello! I just formated my PC today using the Packard Bell Recovery Management on my PC. Everything works fine now, but everytime I go on standby, it says that my account has been deactivated and I can't login. When I reboot my PC after that it comes with that message that appears first time you start a Windows 7 PC after formatting "Preparing windows for first time use" or something (not sure if It's exactly that, It's in danish).

After the PC is booted, it opens up a small window with some kind of system preparation tool that looks like this:

Now, It's really not to any damage other than I can't go to standby without having to reboot the system afterwards. Does anyone know how to solve this problem? Hope all this is enough information.
