I keep getting "service control manager configuration tool" popping up when I start my laptop.

For the last month or so, I get a Windows message that the "service control manager configuration tool" asks if I want to allow this program to access my hard rive etc.  What is it & how do I get rid of it?
Lenovo N580

I've been getting this for over a week but have now solved it, for me at least.

Click on the details and see what SC.EXE is trying to run.

Mine was SC.EXE "start SbieSvc" which is Sandboxie.

Updating this has solved the problem.

Hope this information helps.
