You have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

This popup is a sign of a malware infection on your system. You can use ctrl+alt+ del to bring up the task manager, open the processes tab, and locate the pc.exe and agent.exe processes. Select them, right click and end process for each. That should temporarily get rid of the popup. (See link here, and here, but please don't follow the instructions given there to delete files, etc. Just kill the processes and use the following tools.)
Now you'll need to do some cleanup to remove the offending program from your system before you reboot.
Go to this link and follow the first 4 steps of the malware removal guide. Make sure to update MBAM before you scan, and make sure you follow through all 4 steps before restarting your computer. If you want detailed info on how to run the MBAM, as well as a good description of how you got this virus, click here. Then restart your system and see how it runs. I'd advise an indepth scan with your antivirus program to check for further problems, but that should take care of the privacy center rogue.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Did you validate it? Did you actually buy Windows? If you have a certificate of authenticity (with the activation code) and it doesn't work after validating with this code, call Microsoft.

Make sure that the wireless router mode is the same as your laptops wifi adapter.
Older routers are using b/g network modes. Newer router are b/g/n. Check what your laptop's adapter mode is.

You can't upgrade for no $. But you could (month ago) sign up for Windows Upgrade Offer to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro for just $14.99, now it is $39.99 and it's no longer the upgrade offer.
If you want to get Windows 8 for free*, that is considered as a crime and piracy, so please do not try to do that.

Make sure your password and addresses are correct

First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

That is right. Not only you need a password, to open the PC and be able to run the programm's, the password is also a key for encription of the data. No password, no data.
When you do a reset, and install Windows again, you will lose all data on the computer. So is you really can't remember the password and you did not make a mistake with the caps, you should be lost.
I know there are some less legal program's around, but I can't tell you what programs and I even don't know a name. I think you better use Google, to find out which program's are available and how to get them. Perhaps via news groups. But be aware program's to hack a password, come from a certain community. When you have a program, didconnect the computer from the net, try to recover the password and backup the data unscrambled. Then run a good virus scanner and delete the program.
Just saying.

Pressing the "PrintScrn" will not happen anything, but the mouse cursor may blink once. You'll not see the clipboard but it would be captured to the Ram memory, i.e. the screen is captured virtually which isn't visible to you, you'll only be able to save the captured screenshots with a photo editing program (eg. Paint, Photoshop) or text editor like Microsoft word, etc...

After pressing the "PrintScrn", open the "Paint" and paste, i.e. right click anywhere on a blank document and "Paste". You can also do "Paste" on microsoft word blank document or etc... If you wish to save the screen shot, you have to save the file as Jpeg or Gif or Bitmap etc...

Here's a tutorial for you.. (Click Here)
