There is no information where this may be coming from at all from the screen, if it was encryption it should tell you the program it's from. It may be a hard drive password or a virus. Need some details about how this started. You may want to take this to a local tech to look at.

Need full details about this password prompt, posting a picture of what it looks like will help. We can't help you bypass the password but should be able to sort out what is asking for it if it's not Windows. Some details about the issue may help, is this a new password that appeared on your system? Is it coming from Windows? Anything else on that box aside from the password field? Sounds like it may be a hard drive lock or maybe encryption.
