Are there any security issues or potential weaknesses/misconfigurations when deploying full disc encryption (in this case pointsec PC) onto windows laptops? If so can you detail what could be checked to ensure any such weaknesses/misconfigurations arent evident. Or is it as simple as install as part of build process and then nothing can go wrong?

We use PointSec for all our 32-bit laptops and haven't had any installation problems.  Over time we have run into people leaving then having to use an administrator account to access the laptop, and then there are the occassional virus infections (thank you end users), that have required using the recovery disk to decrypt the drive and the encrypt the drive.
