Is there another part to that error message?

It seems there should be more than just "Failure-Security Options" when you see that message.

When does the message appear?

no other part, just a text box with the message

It pops up randomly. The computer slows to a crawl, then the screen goes black with just a text box with the message. I googled it and there are a lot of posts about the message but nothing about how to fix it. After I shut down the computer, ckeckdisk finds lots of errors when I boot up again.
