Hi,

Taking into consideration where it came from, the likelihood is that it was set up for a non-administrative user with heavy restrictions as to what it can do and be used for, so you probably won't be able to get it running how you would like it to anyway.

It does sound like it would be worth installing a new operating system on it though.
