Hello All,

I am the proud owner of a refurbished Toshiba laptop, which looks really nice not a mark on it, I hope the inside is good too.

This is the first Win 8 machine I've had, previously win 7 which I love and still own 5 machines with it on. Now it being a refurbish, the documents and instructions did not come so I'm a bit blind to it all and it is very different to win 7. So I start it up and there's this screen saying something to me I don't understand System preparation tool 3.14, what the? Can someone please explain what it is and what it does and do I need it and will it keep bothering me forever?

Also when turning the machine on with the button windows boots and I get a blue screen with an admin telling me my account has been disabled, ah that's no good I can't access the machine, so bit worried I hit restart and all is good it comes to the desk top, Does anyone know what this means? I don't want to login, I just want to up a run, no passwords no mucking about. Can someone help with that also?

Thanks for listening and thanks for helping out
Cheers
Jim

Thanks I had a look around and after reading a post by Kari I got it sorted I hope, so after giving Microsoft all my info and setting up an account I'm up and away. It's a pity you have to do all that just to have and use computer.

Cheers
Jim
