    Thanks, ineuw. It's been very useful. I found the experience.exe file in the minitools folders (Minitool Partition Wizard and Minitool ShadowMaker). Deleted them, it seems the problem has vanished, so far.

    I don't get that script, but I'm running a licensed (not free) version of the MTPW stuff. I do, however, get an experience.exe in my Nvidia file tree (but AFAI can tell, it's not causing issues). I'm going to rename it and see if my strange cmd prompt windows at boot-up may disappear. Thanks!

    I've had MTPW on my system for quite a while. I haven't used for some time, but I check it monthly to make sure it's up to date. It has experience.exe in it's folder, but I haven't experienced the script error.

    Ed,

    Doesn't Task manager, Processes tab, Apps section, Command line column show you what is running the error dialog? Mine does.

    All the best,

    The problem came back later. Tracked it down to a file named "experience.exe" that was included in C:\Program Files\Minitools .... folder. When clicked, it generated the script error. This file may be packaged in other apps. I deleted the file from the folder and the error disappeared.
    I had also deleted experience.exe but the error dialog appeared again this morning on one computer. It's the same computer I had the problem with before.

    Task manager, Processes tab, Apps section, Command line column shows me that the dialog is being generated by
    C:\Program Files\MiniTool Partition Wizard 12\updatechecker.exe
    so I've removed all access permissions for that file.
    - I should have made a backup copy of this file first but I forgot.
    - So I might find that I start getting MTPW errors instead of the current Google thing but with any luck the error will be a silent one.

    The script I used to remove access permission was run as Admin -
    Code:
    takeown /f "C:\Program Files\MiniTool Partition Wizard 12\updatechecker.exe" /a
    icacls "C:\Program Files\MiniTool Partition Wizard 12\updatechecker.exe" /inheritance:r /remove "Administrators" "Authenticated Users" "Users" "System"
    Pause to check that it has run correctly
    This script was derived from that used in permissions removed for disabling USOClient [post #4 by ,TairikuOkami].

    I'll post back with an update if any errors appear.
    - My next experiment will be to uninstall MiniToolPartitionWizard then check that all its folders have been deleted [so I have no remnants from v11.5, see post #9] then install it again.

    Added 14th June 2021 - Just to avoid any doubt, there has been no reoccurrence of the popup.

    All the best,
    Denis

    Good troubleshooting work @Try3 (Denis). I didn't check Task Manager, but will do so if the error should appear on one of my systems. Keep up the good efforts!

    Ed, ineuw,

    Just to avoid any doubt, there has been no reoccurrence of the popup since I crippled access to MTPW's update checker [my post #16 above].

    I'm running a just completed fresh Win7 (using SIW2's invaluable Update your Win 7 installation media - Windows 10 Forums) install upgraded to Win 10 2004 on a virgin NVMe.

    Like others the culprit appears to have been Minitool Partition Wizard's updatechecker.exe (thanks to @Try3 for the task manager hint; I hadn't thought of that).

    A non-scripting solution that initially seems to be working for me is go to:
    ("Legacy") Control Panel -> Admin Tools -> Task Scheduler, find and right click on the MinitoolPartitionWizard line item and select "disable".

    I'll give it 48 hrs to see if the script failure pop-up msg has indeed been stopped & confirm via edit

    ===> EDIT 26 Jun: task still disabled in Task Scheduler; disabling did NOT work - trying @Try3's script

    Thanks. This did the trick for me.
