Once this boot count reaches 90, AIDS hides directories and encrypts the names of all files on drive C:, at which time the user is asked to 'renew the license' and contact PC Cyborg Corporation for payment. There exists more than one version of AIDS, and at least one version does not wait to munge drive C:, but will hide directories and encrypt file names upon the first boot after AIDS is installed.
