RE: GE Geek Toolkit. I've just updated it but I use the old free version.
backup encryption key prompt?-ketarin.jpg
I just updated apps but GE Geek directory is C:\GEGeek Toolkit. Is that the directory you copied to a flash drive?

I don't get the same error.

I just formatted my flash drive. Re-ran the Ketarin update on C:\\ and I'm now copying the toolkit folder back to my flash drive. I saved the encryption key to another flash drive then deleted the key. I no longer get the prompt when I start my computer.

I think the toolkit may have had something to do with it.

Don't know much about encryption key. I copied GE Geek Toolkit to a flash drive and it ran with no issues.

Haven't seen the prompt when starting my computer anymore. Weird. There was a password program that had an error but nothing related to file encryption.
