    In administrative tools, I had inadvertanly disabled a user account. Now after rebooting the computer, I get a screen that says "Click on user name" but there are no choices to choose from. The only option at the bottom left of the screen is "Click here to shut down".

    How do I get past this screen to get logged into my computer?

    Assuming this is XP Pro from your PC Specs, hit CTRL+ALT+DEL twice -- This should give the login box. Enter Administrator for user name and then the Administrator password. If Xp came pre-installed, try leaving the password blank. That should get you in to re-enable or recreate a user account.
