Which one did you try?

Option Five is a good one, but you'll need to create it on another PC to use on yours.

Is this for Windows 7, Windows 8, or ?

Windows 7 doesn't ask for an email address at log in, but only your user name and password.

Do you have a digital camera that you could take a picture of this with, and upload and attach? This will hopefully help more to ID what this may be. Be sure to black out the first part of your email address first though.
