Hello Sdrum,

 

This dialog box can be due to an antivirus program installed on your computer. To learn more about your concern, kindly answer the following questions:

 

  • Have you made any changes on your computer prior to the issue?
  • During when do you get this dialog box? Is it during Startup or while browsing your computer?
  • Do you have an antivirus program installed on your computer?
  • Have you recently installed any software program?

 

We’ll keep an eye out on your response.

1. Yes. Installed the latest feature update.

2. IT's not on startup. Seems to be random

3. Yes Norton Security Suite. But it's been there all the time. This just started since the last update

Thank you for the update, Sdrum. It seems to be an old issue with the Norton Security Suite. For more information, you may want to check the post of Bill Smithers from this old thread. You can also try to disable it by doing these steps: Open NIS interface, Settings, Network, Message Protection and slide the slider to off beside AntiSpam, Click Apply and OK.

Feel free to get back to us should you need further assistance.

If it's something that old, why would it surface just in the last week or so?

What does turning the slider to OFF do?

Have you tried to login to Norton within the Norton Security Suite?

I have this 'problem' too.

It seems that the Windows-update cleared some info so that Norton is unable to check the license we own. After the 'sign in' in Norton, the 'problem' disappeared.

Good luck

Did you ever have Norton installed on the computer?  https://community.norton.com/en/forums/what-antispam-oe-hook-launcher

If you are no longer using Norton try running the Norton Removal Tool: List of anti-malware product removal tools

Doesn't matter if you enter a password, I did that the first couple of times once I verified it was authentic. It will only start popping up again. It's SUPER annoying! And it will pop up here whenever my PC goes into saver or sleep mode.

Can't take it anymore. I'm removing one thing or the other TODAY. I've always used Norton on my PCs. Nothing new just starts popping up. So it has to be due to MSW.

I hope one of the fixes here will work ... so frustrating.
