    I have re-installed windows, and after reinstalling,I was just updating windows and while they were getting updated, it re-started automatically and after restarting the same screen starts appearing. I am very much tensed, what should I do to make it work again?
    I have contacted the seller too,but they said too it seems that it has been hacked.

    PS: I am using this laptop for last 9 months,and I purchased it brand new

    Hi PCguy. Welcome to the forum. Did you by the laptop from store or from an individual? I'm wondering if it was stolen from Boz Allen Hamilton?

    If as you state you have reinstalled the O/S, it seems likely that your router has been compromised.
    Open Task Manager and in Services see if anything odd is running, if any suspect highlight and click on end task.
    Shut down computer and "Disconnect router from electricity source". Reconnect router to power and turn on computer.

    That's good so we can rule that out. The router reset that Dencal suggested is that next thing to do.

    My guess is the computer is probably stolen, The reason you keep getting that message is because they (Booz Allan Hamilton) have some code in the BIOS that only lets their employees use the computer.

    There is probably no way around this, Take the computer and get your money back if they refuse tell them you are going to have to call the police and also report it to Booz allen.

    Here are a couple of google searches that made me come up with this conclusion:
    Search for the phone number:
    877 927 8278 - Google Search

    Search for:
    warning This system is property of Booz Allen Hamilton
    warning: This system is property of Booa Allen Hamilton - Google Search

    It is possible that You bought a refurbished model and didn't know it. Everything I found leads to Booz Allen being a Legit Company.

    Only possible solution would be to remove the HDD and put in a Dock or connect it inside a desktop and low level format the HDD using a tool like

    That'll take a long time so while waiting remove the power cord, battery, and disconnect the CMOS battery from the MOBO. Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. You can also Do the power button a second time a few minutes later then put everything back together.

    If this Fails then return it to the seller and demand Your money back with The Police present. On second thought that might be the Best Option to start with.

    A bit more research reveals that Booz Alan Hamilton are NSA contractors Top-Secret NSA Files Stolen, Booz Allen Hamilton Contractor Charged: FBI - McLean, VA Patch
    All sounds a bit dodgy to me.
