    Hi, I would suggest the usual procedure of elimination.

    Try a clean boot. Hopefully it won't appear then.

    If it does, then try Safe Mode. If it doesn't appear then, then you need to identify what is different between Safe Mode and a clean boot, and determine the originating process.

    If it doesn't appear after a clean boot, then progressively enable services then startups until it does.

    Once you know the process or service it relates to, you will have a lot more to go on.
