Pointsec 2006 problem

Hi. I have a laptop a user gave me to move data to his new laptop. He has Pointsec 2006 he installed on it. The problem is when you enter the logon and password for Pointsec the XP splash screen comes up and right when the logon screen tries to come up i get a quick BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH that says begining physical memory dump. I cant read the whole thing because it reboots and I get the same thing over and over. I have tried LKG and Safe mode and nothing works. Obviously I cannot hook the drive up externally because its encrypted. Can anyone help???

Hit F8, like youre going to Safe Mode, and hit "Disable Automatic Restart on Failure". More than likely, it has to do with the GinaDLL value in the registry under "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

\systemroot\system32\config\SAM...any suggestions? Im worried I wont be able to do a repair on the system b/c of pointsec.

Quite possible if it does entire drive encryption. Basically, the SAM hive in teh registry is corrupt.

This can be done with UBCD perhaps, but it might not be able to read the drive (sorry, dont use Pointsec).
Windows Recovery Console *might* get you in, as the user still has to authenticate, and teh local Admin should be a DRA by default if memory serves me correctly,....
