To resolve this issue, regain access to the Windows environment by undoing the previous restore point action in Safe Mode. This returns the notebook to a previous known good state.
To undo a previous restore point:
  1. Restart the notebook, then press F8 before the Windows logo appears to enter SafeMode.
  2. Select SafeMode from the menu.
  3. In Windows, open the Control Panel and click Return to a previous Retsore Point.
  4. Select the latest Restore Point from the list, click Undo, then follow the on-screen instructions.
After undoing the last Restore Point, uninstall ProtectTools and its components, then download and install a new version. HP recommends installing ProtectTools Security Manager 6.06.1004 or later.
Visit hp.com, click Support & Drivers, then locate the latest ProtectTools software for the affected notebook. Alternatively, run HP Support Assistant (if installed) to automatically update ProtectTools.
