Your computer has been disabled using Intel(R) Anti-Theft Technology due to: Platform Attack detected

Jump to solution

My Dell laptop has been disabled for days now and even Intel, McAfee and Dell cannot help. It had an issue right after having a windows update. It just won't boot or go into SafeMode. I tried removing/reseating CMOS Battery removing the HDD. My laptop has been disabled right after. Does anyone know any workarounds? Thanks!

​  Hi sir, may I know if there is any solution regarding this? thanks!

Sorry unless you know the password you may have to replace the motherboard as Anti-theft is 2 years past End of life and support now do not have any ability to restore the laptop if you do not know the password.

Maybe Dell know a default setup  but it is past McAfee Support assisting you and we mods are just helpers here.
