Windows 7: PC locked up and rebooted with legacy dos screen again

PC locked up and rebooted with legacy dos screen again

This time the message was DES has been disabled. Enable it or some such nonsense. I have no clue what it means. Luckily I had a PS/2 keyboard to use to hit the ENTER key or my PC would have been disabled again.

When I got back online, every website that uses PWs had to be logged back into. Sites that I never have to log into once I've done it once.

What is this DES and is it related to cookies?

Data Encryption Standard - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

As far as re-entering the uid and password did you save them in a browser?

Hope I helped

Why would Windows 7 be telling me on bootup that data encryption standard is disabled? Does that even make any sense to anyone? Is there even a data encrption standard that I can enable?

What's saving uid and password in a browser got to do with anything? Whatever that means...I don't know how you would save them in a browser. When I go to a member site, I am always logged in. After this crash, every site I was logged in to is asking me to log in again. It's not like I can't do it, I just don't know why I need to after a crash.

For the record, I've had about a dozen crashes since RC. Can't ever remember having one on XP...
