i came home and turned the power on,for some reasons there is a strange OS or smth active on it called: SOPHOS Safeguard Enterprise Device Encryption (SGN DE).

When i start up the computer i get the start-up screen from HP with the options:

F9 for boot menu

F10 Setup

F12 Network service boot

I just letting this screen pass and then SOPHOS shows up with the info:

 

Thank you for taking the time to try SOPHOS Safeguard Enterprise Device Encryption (SGN DE) product.

*** This trial is preconfigured Please ensure that this is installed on test equipment only ***

 

The only 2 options that appear are : Accept or Shutdown.

Atm got some issues with it, I tried this several things like change the boot setup to CD-ROM,

inserted a Windows 7 Professional disk,but when the computer restarts hisself and boot it from CD-ROM drive nothing happends,only a black screen with nothing on it, also changed the boot order manualy in the bios settings but still it doesnt help anything.

Is it possible that a Pentium 4 doesnt work with Windows 7?

Also anyone how do delete SOPHOS? since i even cant pass the Login screen..

 

Please gimme some feedback how to fix this issue..

 

Thanks!

Try installing XP on there. Probably better to have XP on it anyways, instead of win7.
