Default Problem with Pro Tools M-Powered Essential 8

I have M-Audio Fast Track with Pro Tools M-Powered Essential 8 ,
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1

And I have this problem when program start:

Loss of Plug-In authorization keys may occur.

This system contains one or more driver(s) formatted with NTFS, which
have volume names longer than 11 characters. This combination is
known to corrupt some InterLok Plug-In authorizations. If you know
which drives are authorized and they are not configured this way, or if
you have no InterLok protected plug-ins , then you may continue. In
order to remedy this issue before corruption can occur click “Yes” to
quit Pro Tools and rename NTFS volumes to names that are 11
characters or less . Next, re launch Pro Tools and this dialog should not appear.

Quit Pro Tools?

“Yes” or “No”

What can i do with this problem?

Go to MyComputer and look at the names on all of your drives. Anything with more than 11 characters(a space is still a character) should be renamed. Right-click on a drive and select Rename. IOW, a drive named "ProTools Sessions" is more than 11 characters and should be shortened to something like "PTaudio"
