This document will show how to determine if FIPS is installed on your machine. This is handy when troubleshooting the Protect Console crashing.
Open up your registry editor and navigate to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\FIPSAlgorithmPolicy\Enabled.
If the Enabled value is 0 then FIPS is not enabled. If the Enabled value is 1 then FIPS is enabled.
