Windows 10: What causes popup during boot?

Page 2 of 2 FirstFirst 12
  1.    04 Dec 2016 #11

    The Startup Type of Windows Management Instrumentation is Automatic and it is running. I tried going back to a earlier restore point early on but that did not help so I restored my backup on the first of November and that did not help. I only keep four backups; Two on the fifteenth and two on the first of the month although I changed my backup procedure and may have one earlier that I have not deleted yet. It would take a lot of doing to restore and update one of the old backups.This coming spring when they bring out the next major update I am going to make a backup of it immediately and keep it until there has been two more major updates. That should help if ever I get another bad problem like this. I think that I should expand the disk space for restore points also.

    Also, do you use System Restore?

    Try going back to a previous Restore Point:
    System Restore Windows 10
    Select Option Two: Do a System Restore of Windows 10 in Windows 10

    Be aware of programs and drivers that will be affected!

    Restart the computer, and let us know if you still get the prompt.



    If you prefer not to restore to a previous point, you can do the following:

    Temporarily disable System Restore

    In Ask me anything, type: restore
    In the results, click: Create a restore point
    This gets you to the System Restore options.

    In the prompt that appears, click: Configure
    Next, click: Turn off System Protection
    Click: Apply and OK

    Be aware that previous Restore Points are removed!

    Restart the computer, and let us know if you still get the prompt.
    I have not forgot about this thread, we have been swamped here. So I went through the thread again.
    Since my last post I did a repair install, so this operating system should be in top shape.
    I turned off the system protection and then back on again. This did not fix the problem.

    I did add a restore point when done with the above just to be safe.

    I hope that there is something else to try for a fix.
