When you see the Pointsec PC loading screen press and hold both shift keys. Turn off the USB in that menu. The press 9 to continue. If this does not work please let me know.

What version of Pointsec and what passwords did they change? The Pointsec Passwords or the Windows Passwords?

PointSec Recovery

First,check for the recovery file thats created when you have installed the PointSec on the computer.If this not there then forget about the data in the HDD.

If, You have the recovery file,then unlock the file to a floppy disket(it'll be a bootable disk).From any other system where pointsec is installed(from make
recovery disk option that is there in the programs in start menu).

After this,boot the system with this floopy,then it will ask for decrypet(choose all drives).

Along with rams_g22@ post you need the 2 Pointsec Administrator accounts when you boot the the floppy.

Contact Pointsec

You need to get the bootable CD/diskete files so you can log into Poinsec as the administrator. If you don't have the admin login and password you will not be able to retrieve the data. If you have another machine with Poinsec on it you can remove the defective drive and add it as a second drive to the other machine. Then you will bw able to access both drives under the admin login.
