I am the only second person having win 7 in our envirment and under User Account of Control Panel it is my name listed there instead of Administrator name. I did prep this laptop and someone else joined laptop to our domain. I tried that person's login name, my loing name and Administrator  and none of them worked.

I don't know the ip since I can not  get that far.
