Unauthorised Change! RRS feed

  • Question

  • The problem i'm experiencing seems to be a common one but t 

    o me it was totally out of the blue. I simply turned on my laptop and signed into my account, then a box popped up with a heading 'Windows Software Protection'. Under this was 'An Unauthorised Change Was Made To Windows', with two options one was to 'Learn More Online' and the other 'Close'. That is not all though because i also have no start button and i cant access my Control Panel or basically do nothing but access the internet. I have tried validating and 'Office' validates ok but windows does'nt please help me out i only had this laptop for christmas and dont know what to do.
