    While working in a program, screen froze and could not shutdown task. Powered the computer down to reboot and only brings me to a Windows Password Recovery Tool screen and only promps to reset. Passwords were never an issue. Apparently something has redirected to this screen that I can't get past. Is this a hack or virus. I'm afraid to hit the reset button. I have attached picture of screen that's on my Pc. Have you ever seen this before ? Any help. Thanks Hope that attached the picture properly. Thanks again

    It booted into recovery mode. It has nothing to do with recovering passwords.

    Your computer crashed and won't boot.
