You bought a premade machine. You always reformat them right after. Otherwise you'll never tear all the crap-ware out.

As for the current state... try booting safe mode.

From Googling, it looks like this is caused by replacing the motherboard and having a different serial number than the recovery CD is looking for. From what I see, your choices are paying HP or purchasing a copy of Windows. If I were you, I'd just purchase Windows and be rid of that.
