I have a laptop that was once the company laptop, and used to get in the via bitlocker. Today I had a scary incidence that the bitlocker tmp file was corrupted and for a long time could not get in. Admin wouldn't help because the laptop is out of company support. Luckily I found the recovery key printed from a long time ago and came in very handy. For future, is there a way I remove this bitlocker procedure from this laptop.. I am ok w/ non-encrypted files and it is my personal computer. Please walk me thro' it as am MS challenged when it comes to security. Please make it so that I do not get locked in again.

Thanks;

Once the drive is unlocked you should be able to click on drive (right click) and click unencrypted drive

Press Start - in search pane type: Bitlocker - then open the selected Bitlocker Drive Encryption.
Once opened you can an option either to remove it or turn it on.

Thanks noxcho... please confirm that when I reboot the laptop, it does not ask for the bitlocker ever again? I am sort of spooked by it.

Once you remove it and see in the screen which I posted no volume with bitlocker on - it will not ask for Bitlocker password.
