Hi Podge1712,

 

·         When exactly do you receive the mentioned pop-up?

·         Have you made any changes on the computer prior to the issue?

 

Follow the suggestions listed below for a possible fix:

 

Method 1: Try performing SFC (System File Checker) scan on the computer.

Method 2: I would also suggest you to scan your computer with Microsoft Safety Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware, and other malicious software.

The Microsoft Safety Scanner is a free downloadable security tool that provides on-demand scanning and helps remove viruses, spyware, and other malicious software. It works with your existing antivirus software.

Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner expires 10 days after being downloaded. To rerun a scan with the latest anti-malware definitions, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

 

Important: While performing scanning on the hard drive if any bad sectors are found on the hard drive when scanning tries to repair that sector if any data available on that might be lost.

 

Let us know if you need further assistance.

OK, looks good.  I discovered the problem to be a bad load of Google toolbar.  Un-installed that and the problem cleared up.
Will keep your suggestions for future use if needed.
Thanks
