    Reboot dialog after computer boots

    I am getting a suspicious looking dialog which says Hardware settings have changed and reboot is required. It does not look like a normal dialog and I suspect it might be malicious. Anyone else seen this

    Hi and welcome to forum.
    Did you check your Device manager for any new or not working device ?

    reboot dialog

    Hi, thanks for your reply. I have checked Device Manager and all looks well there. What makes me suspicious is it appears after each reboot. I close the dialog but next reboot it appears again. I have run Defender scan and no issues I have not tried Malware Bytes. I will try that and see.
