filter out users based on permissions

i have received an xlsx file of users and their corresponding security roles for an application. one of the roles is called disabled. If they have that role they cannot access the system. However a user can have many roles, e.g

user 1 - disabled
user 1 - HR read access
user 1 - payroll  read access

what I need is away of filtering the list, to only show users who do not have the disabled role, and just create a filtered list of active accounts and which roles they do have. user name is column A, and the role name is column C. Is there an easy way to acheive this. e.g. if original data was this

user 1 - disabled
user 1 - HR read access
user 1 - payroll  read access
user 2 - HR read access
user 2 - HR admin access
user 3 - disabled
user 3 - HR read access

one filtered would only return

user 2 - HR read access
user 2 - HR admin access

as that is the only user without the disabled role
