Windows 7: user name & password is incorrect

32bit - I think?
user name & password is incorrect


I'm not the most tecnical of people, so please bare with me. We bought as exdisplay PC & they told us it would be restored to factory settings. When i start up it immediately tells me user name & password is incorrect. I click okay & it wants me to log into kiosk. From there I have to switch user. I've looked in user accounts a dozen times - there is only on user account (admin) & it's in my name. So where or what is kiosk? I've done the whole "regedit" thing but I don't have a default folder under profiles. Please help!

try start > run (type it in to the search) > 'control userpasswords2' (without quotes) and make sure that 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer' is checked as it sounds like autologon was configured when it was on display
