Disk encryption works, then locks me out.

HI, I'm trying to get McAfee disk Encryption 7.2 working in an offline environment that doesn't have access to an EPO server until there is a vpn connection.

I built the stand-alone encryption package, encrypted the machine and restarted. I entered the recovery information and I was in to windows.

Today I started the machine and the user account I had used was unrecognised. I'm guessing that the policies configured for disk encryption applied themselves to my machine and removed my user.

Does anyone know which policy and what I would have to set to avoid this behaviour?
