Strange pop-up notice after update

Anyone know what is this earth-shape pop-up notifications which I cannot click or get rid of it? It showed up after I installed feature updates 20h2. If I restart, it shows up suddenly in the righ-hand bottom corner which covers my 1/4 screeen. 

Hope someone can help! 

Regards

Kevin

Hi thanks for the screen shot, seems strange as it is not part of Windows, moreover to make sure, kindly disable all apps on your startup:

Open Task manager (Press CTRL+Shift+ESC)

Click startup then disable all which is not necessary.


Next is:
Clean boot:
A “clean boot” starts Windows with a minimal set of drivers and startup programs, so that you can determine whether a background program is interfering with your game or program.

- In the search box on the taskbar, type msconfig and select System Configuration from the results.

- On the Services tab of System Configuration, select Hide all Microsoft services, and then select Disable all.

- On the Startup tab of System Configuration, select Open Task Manager.

- Under Startup in Task Manager, for each startup item, select the item and then select Disable.

- Close Task Manager.

- On the Startup tab of System Configuration, select OK. When you restart the computer, it's in a clean boot environment.

Let me know if that is the same, and kindly check all your programs

This big white popup window with the globe, the disabled/error mark, and little "stars" orbiting it's part of Avira antivirus software.

I suggest uninstalling Avira and relying on Windows Security / Defender, especially if Avira's going to throw up garbage like this: mysteries like this are why one runs software like Avira, and yet Avira can't be bothered to label their popup window? 🤣

Thanks for sharing the screenshot.

Had the same issue today. My Avira got uninstalled randomly when this popup appeared. I had to close all my tabs and restarted. I'm thinking twice about reinstalling avira.
