I've been running Win 7 Pro 64-bit for about a year now, ever since it was released. All of a sudden, today, I get the above message at boot and it's now down with my tray icons. I don't encrypt anything, and I never have. Is this spyware trying to trick me into locking out my computer? I have heard of ransomware that people execute, it locks their discs, and then they have to pay someone somewhere a ransom for the code to unlock their disc. I run PC Tools ASW/AV, and full/deep scans of all disks find nothing amiss other than the same cookies I always have from going to well-known news and retail sites and such. Is this a legitimate item, and if so, why did it take a year to start popping up and asking me, especially when I don't encrypt anything on any of my drives. Thanks for any info.
