Can't access OWA on Windows 7 starter netbook

Have a user that bought a new netbook with Windows 7 starter edition.  Trying to access OWA on exchange 2003 will not accept username/password.  Works fine on other Windows 7 machines.  Have tried entering the username in the domain/username and username@domain format - no help.  It gives you 3 tries and then an access denied error.  Turned off Windows firewall - no help.  Disabled automatically detect settings under lan settings - no help.  Added the domain to the trusted sites - no help.  Created a new admin user on the netbook - no help.  Tried other valid username/password for OWA - none work.  Any ideas?

This problem is to do with the earlier saved user id and password in IE8. Reset the browser and delete the saved credentials (from Windows 7 control panel) and cookies(IE). Close the browser and try again, you should be able to signin again.

That didn't seem to help.  It always asks for logon credentials - gives me 3 tries before I get the access denied page.  Creating a new windows user account didn't work either.

just to be sure its not an issue with the netbook, have you tried Firefox or Chrome, you should still be able to the basic format of OWA without IE (which usually has the Premium setting).  Also check IE8 that the Auto Detect Settings is NOT checked.
Go to Internet Options -> Connections -> Lan Settings and un-check the Automatically detect settings check-box if its ticked.  Then close and restart the browser.
