P.S. It would be much easier to read your responses if you didn't quote what we have said and add your reply inside the quote.
Sorry- I added the *** to make that easier**

the dele key does not help me any.

Windows 7 Ultimate RTM (Technet)

I don't think the user has ever actually made it into Windows the first time. It sounds like they are stuck at this Gate thing and not getting past it, think it is Windows 7.

I am getting that 'Catch 22' feeling again- as I can't go on-line with my desktop and my new ASUS at the same time .. and cannot go on-line with the ASUS until I get an external Modem- and even if I had it I could not be n-line with both at the same time--
Yeah there was some confusion, but we got out of express gate and to the account log on screen.

He is at an "Account Disabled" block

dont know if this is the admin account? or one that was preset when refurbished? not sure.

I suggested to create a new user, but not sure if thats possible from that screen or if activating the hidden admin account is needed? any other thoughts are very welcome
