When I have started my computer the past two days, there has been a pop up window asking me to set an IBM® Rescue and Recovery ™ password.  The options are:


  • Make my IBM Rescue and Recovery password the same as my Windows password.
  • Set a different password for IBM Rescue and Recovery.
  • I'll set the IBM Rescue and Recover password later.

There is a Warning:  If this window opened while you were installing software instead of while you were setting a Windows password, press the Cancel button now.  If you were not setting a Windows password, and you choose to continue, your action might prevent you from accessing your backups of the IBM Rescue and Recovery workspace.  Uless you were setting a Windows password, press Cancel now.



I have never seen this before and don't know why it started to appear. 


Does anyone have any comments or suggestions on this?
