    It's Acronis True Image. I'd open the image in MSPaint and rotate it 180 so it's readable and post again.

    If a free trial has expired or been crippled one usually has to buy it and reinstall. That type software has been around for more than 20 years, usually called Shareware, try then buy or uninstall.

    If it's the Acronis True Image program keeping you out have to gone to their site? Maybe booting into Safe Mode will bypass ATI loading?

    What happens when you select NO and do not allow the changes??
    I assume your computer is booting to this program?
