    A Windows 10 popup


    My new computer Windows 10 desktop.......
    Driving my nuts... Windows 10 popup lower right corner covering up the windows icon I have to click on to sign in to open my screen.......... keeps chiming in with "your cox account is not updated" ... I have Cox cable, San Diego... Its not them, its Windows 10.......
    Yes I did input my @cox email info Win 10, so it works,,, but still get this annoying CHIMING popup !!!
    I use Firefox browser so I have my bookmarks/favorites back... I had to disable having to sign in again after timeouts so I could still use my computer.........
    BTW, I put all my favorites on one of my websites so I can just go there and use that as a home page if I need /want to

    Thanks, Lewis

    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.

    sadly, I have no idea how to do that
    The popup appears lower right corner, one inch high and four inches long... covering up the icon I have to click on to sign in to open my window... usually lasted for several minutes... now that I have disabled the need to sign back in to my window after the screen times out (by selecting "Never" in the timeout app the popup turns up occasionally, loudly chimes and then goes away in several seconds.... I have to keep my sound turned OFF to avoid getting really annoyed... often it will popup 3 or four times in a 5 minute period... then I wont see it again for a couple hours....
    I HAVE put my uptodate info into the mail page you click on on the Win 10 interface but at the top of that screen it STILL tells me I have to update it!

    Maybe it wants me to include ALL my social media stuff?? but I dont DO social media !!
    wierd !!!
    Thanks, Lewis
