    Explorer.exe popup

    Each time I start the computer, I get a popup that say Explorer.exe! There is no other information. Otherwise, everything is working well.

    Download and run ProcessExplorer. It does not need to be installed.

    Drag-and-drop target to find an image. If you're not sure which application corresponds to which image in Process Explorer, click and drag the little gun sight icon on the Process Explorer toolbar, and drop it on any visible window to find out what process/image it is.
    Once the error message is on the screen, start ProcessExplorer and drag the target icon and drop it on the error message window. It will show the process that generated that window highlighted in blue in the PE window.

    Then use msconfig Startup (or Task Manager Startup tab) and Services tabs to find and disable that process.

    Not much help there.

    Try using Clean Boot to identify the cause.

    Have you tried running SFC /Scannow from your Command Prompt (Admin) to see if you have errors??

    I ran SCF /Scannow. It found no integrity violations.

    I dragged the popup to the recycle gin and it went away for now.
