HP Drive Encryption Stuck at 26%

HP uses McAfee Endpoint Encryption by the way.
Recently i hosed my OS with New SID.

I have since reformatted and reinstalled Windows 7.
I'm a tech savvy guy so i have all the updates, services packs, drivers that are needed for my pc.

But i checked one time and the encryption was still at 26% from the last time i checked it.
Ive tried disabling and enabling but it doesnt do anything.
I cant uninstall safely because my disk will be left partly encrypted.
Does anybody have any clue as how to help it continue encrypting?

How long has it been busy encrypting? Depending on the size of disk and algorithm used, it can take a very significant amount of time.

Wow! You might have to chase that up directly with HP/MaCrappee. If you do, let us know what they say.
