I'm running windows xp pro sp2 on a partitioned intel mac, and have had problems for about a week with a popup message on startup. I thought it was restricted to games purchased from Big Fish Games, but have now discovered it is affecting other programs too (specifically today Dragon Naturally Speaking). Basically I cannot open up some programs because of the following pop up message. Additionally, each time I boot up I have to validate my copy of windows again. It validates ok, then the following pop up appears before I've even tried to open a program.
Heading: Key required
This program requires a security key. If you have one, select OK to enter it. After entering a valid key, you will not be prompted again.
I've run the Avast virus checker, which can't find anything. and I've also downloaded and run windows defender - again with no negative results.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
