ThizLinux cam with my comp but ask for login info what do i do

I bought a computer that came with ThizLinux, it asked for a username and password, i do not have that. I thought it was something from the store so i reinstalled it but the same problem. How do i login if i don't have that info? Is there a basic login and password for when you first start using thizlinux?

Dont know much about it but I managed to find the link to the company`s website:
They have a section for support and you can ask them what to do. My suggestion is to download and install Ubuntu Linux which can be found at:
Good Luck

You bought from a store? Where?

Often, a new install will have no passwords enabled. In these cases, you log in as root with no password. Then you can create a password by typing "passwd root"
