This message comes up when someone has (or had) software from Blancco installed on the system. This software stores information on the computer's Master Boot Record. You will need to fix / replace the master boot record to remove this.

I must advise you to perform a full backup on the hard disks and check with your company prior to doing anything further. They may have installed this Blancco software and need it to be there for a reason.

After you've performed a full backup to an external drive or media, you need to create a bootable MSDOS startup floppy disk and copy the FDISK command to it as well. Then after booting from this disk, type "fdisk /mbr" at the prompt. The FDISK program will rebuild your MBR and write over the Blancco information.

If you have a copy of "The Ultimate Boot CD 4 Windows" it has several programs that will also fix your MBR as well.

Good luck!
