    Sudden unstoppable notifications in taskbar

    An issue I've never had before, so looking for any insights please.

    While running a normally reliable application (a macro in Macro Express Pro) I suddenly started getting an unstoppable succession of notifications:
    "Macro Express Pro
    An event was logged"

    I had to use Task Mgr to terminate.

    I went to Win 10 Settings > Notifications & Actions > 'Get notifications from these apps' (in order to temporarily prevent a re-occurrence until I find the cause), but there is no entry for Macro Express Pro in the list.

    BTW, never had any taskbar notification like that before, from any app. Interested to know how others configure this 'feature'?

    I've never used the software but maybe turn off logging in settings.

    Thanks, you’re right. I had turned off a couple of log settings but missed one for ‘Unusal events’. I sent Support an extract from the log and they recognised it as a known issue.

    Any idea how that list of apps in Notificatios & Actions gets populated, and/or how the notifications get displayed given that MX Pro is not on it?

    No idea but you could probably read through options 3 to 6 here:
