... on the new PC, have you logged into TMF -- i.e., did it ask for your screen name and password, you typed them in and they were accepted? YES - BUT WHY DID I HAVE TO? WHAT ADDITIONAL INFO IS ACCOMPANYING KEYSTROKES ON THE NEW PC?

Why did you have to type your screen name and password? So TMF can place a cookie on the new PC. Then when you connect to TMF, it can read the cookie and understand who is logged on. There isn't really any "additional info"... maybe I'm not following your question.

I think you'll need to have someone take a look at your PC and figure out what's wrong -- maybe a friend who uses the same ISP.
