Hi, I have a Windows 10. I started a new job and was sent a Secure Workspace via USB. Initially, the drive worked once and I was able to see the loaded programs, however, it has not worked since. Now when I boot the using F12 and selecting UEFI , it loads I am able to login on but then the screen goes black and shuts my pc down. I've switched USB ports, uninstalled and reinstalled drivers, run the troubleshooter, changed a multitude of settings. Reformatted (using FAT32) the drive and rewritten several times, using different drives. I used Fedora Media Writer to write & rewrite. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

First and foremost, contact the IT dept. Where I used to work, messing with company software and or systems was a terminating offense SO contact them first.

I'm a contractor and they are aware of my efforts to boot the provided drive. I need tech assistance not policy checkers thanks for your concern.

Then contact them. Provide the support desk with whatever version# of windows, what antivirus software, any third party firewall, etc.
You are asking about proprietary software and assistance is going to have to come from the provider of said software.

Actually, I am asking why my PC is shutting down. If you read my request I clearly state I can log into their driver. They provided me credentials I didn't steal them. It is my system my personal computer I am asking if anyone know why it would do that any settings that might be causing that. If you don't know please don't respond. As, I stated i came here for tech assistance not your third degree. If you actually read the request we could have avoided all of this nonsense.

I really don't care about points. I came here for assistance, techguy.org you guys claim to offer assistance but haven't offered any tech assistance instead offer me advise I dont need. I was locked out of my bitlocker and instead of saying press F2 to gain access I get a stupid reply. Im closing this request because we don't know your intentions. So you guys are utterly useless and the sizable donation I was going to give can go to some place that actually assists. As far, as how I spoke to your meditator who really should have taken the time to read the request before policing it. Since when are facts disrespectful??
