    It's an ASUS motherboard so I guess they're the cause. I'm not sure I want to mess around with uninstalling motherboard things. At least now I've narrowed it down.

    Yes, instv2 appears to be the generic name of their installer package, apparently it's typically found in:
    C:\users\{user}\downloads\mb support asus\bin\instv2.exe
    Here's a thread that mentions it...

    Now that you have a little more info, best wait as you say for ASUS response.
    Note: they also have a forum, of course, so you could try searching that for info.
    Unfortunate it's run from a temp folder, so less indicative.

    One thing more you can do is to rt click on loading.exe, Properties, Details.

    Since you asked: I spent about half an hour with tech support today and their final call was to factory reset the machine and reload all my software. Our internet here is circa 1995 so I may just have to put up with that error message for the time being. That's a lot less hassle than closing an error message window that doesn't seem to matter.

    Again- One thing more you can do is to rt click on loading.exe, Properties, Details.

    And- assuming the message occurs after you log on - have you ever tried a clean boot as I suggested way back?

    Well, we know a lot more about what is starting now - loading.exe which is in the temp\instv2load folder, is classed as InstAllv2Load and came from Asus. What we want to know now is what's starting it. There a utility from the Sysyinternals suite that can help - Autoruns.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sys...loads/autoruns

    When we know what is starting this and where the sources are located we could (preferably) sort out what files it's looking for and point it at them (it appears to be looking for them on the CD drive at present), or at a minimum stop it from starting. It may also be possible (once we know what exactly it is) to download a manual install package from Asus.

    Exactly- If the message does not occur after a clean boot, we know it can be blocked by disabling a start-up, for example. (Probably not what I'd do personally, but this makes it simple).
