Hi,

 

For the last two days, when I've told my Windows 10 PC to shut down, I've had the following message appear:

 

"If you restart now, you and any other people using this PC could lose unsaved work."

 

This is very worrying as I'm the only one who uses the PC. Does this mean I've been hacked?

 

I've run Malwarebytes which found nothing.

 

Thank you,

Joe

Hi, a number of people have reported this issue, appears to be part of the new sign in feature , you can safely turn it off (most do).

 

Press the win + r keys together in the run dialogue box copy paste:-

 

ms-settings:signinoptions (press enter)

 

Scroll down to Privacy and tun off "Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart"

I've tried to do that, but all it says under privacy is: "Show account details (e.g. email address) on sign-in screen".

Hi, is there any particular reason you are running a superseded version of windows? The latest has vastly improved security and many new features, although not all are likely to be appreciated. I know of no reason for the message you receive on your version, I have nothing in our database regarding this.
