After installing DiskCryptor for compliance, I am unable to log on to my computer at all.

After installing and encrypting, my computer had shut down.  Start up ran Automatic Repair, but came back saying it couldn't repair my PC and to try other options.  I tried most other options with no results.  Any suggestions?

@LaurieHom 

You used a third-party encryption app and now your PC won't start -- and, most likely, you have lost EVERYTHING in the prcess!

 

Why?

 

First, because we at HP have absolutely NO WAY to recover anything encrypted by third-party products.  So, we can provide no assistance whatsoever in getting anything back.

 

Second, PRIOR to any full-disk encryption, it is CRITICAL that you make a full image backup -- so you have something to restore FROM if something like this happens.

 

You only recourse at this point will be to completely refresh your PC.
