BitLocker

I am trying to encrypt a 250 gb internal had drive with bitlocker... it made it until 57% and will not finish. When I restart my pc and click resume it starts then returns to yellow (pause). I am now also having big problems with my machine now freezing. Some how bitlocker and windows live are part of the problem... I think. Any ways does anyone have any though or tricks to get this drive to finish encrypting?

Thanks

My limited experience with failed BitLocker operations is that I had to use the DiskPart CLEAN command to get to where I could even access the drive that failed.

When you get ready to use Bitlocker, disconnect from the internet then turn off your anti-virus, anti-anything software. Close all programs. Now use BitLocker.

Went to the New Efficiency thing today and one of the MS presenters said that the FBI asked MS if there would be a backdoor for Bitlocker. MS said no. According to the MS guy, the FBI then said to MS: you can't include it on 7 consumer versions. Maybe this been discussed here or elsewhere, but that...
