I've got a new Sony Vaio that wants to update its BIOS and then it asks me whether I have Microsoft BitLocker. I don't think so but I want to make sure and maybe you can help me? Could Microsoft BitLocker have been pre-installed by the manufacturer or can I safely not worry about this and proceed and update the BIOS?

I think I might have chosen some encryption during setup so how can I check whether it is safe to upgrade?

Thanks in advance

Update

It says from control panel < Your computer does not currently have a file encryption certificate so it seems I safely can proceed with the BIOS update.

In Control Panel there's an option called BitLocker Drive Encryption, that will tell you whether or not your drive is encrypted.

More details on this can be found on Microsoft TechNet here
