after owning a samsung laptop for over 5 years I suddenly got this message when I turned it on... Intel (R) Anti-theft technology system lock due to : Platform attack detected

Time left to enter password : 3446

Please select one of the following for platform recovery:

1 - user password

2 - server token password

Computer locked by intel anti-theft technology

intel anti-theft technology service provider id: 2000

This looks like mainboard security since I can remove my hard drive and I get the same message

any ideas... help... Tony

Intel no longer handles this.   McAfee does, but will likely tell you there is nothing you can do.  However, you can try and contact McAfee.
