    New warning after latest Win 10 update

    I have attached a Snip of a warning notice found by my Startup Monitor of something that wants to be run when I start up Win 10. It began appearing after I updated to the latest version of Win 10 in the past few days. Clicking Yes or No has no effect, and I have no idea what it is referring to. Can anyone tell me what it is about and how to get rid of it? Many thanks!

    This is to do with Microsoft Visual C++ which is used by app developers and therefore needs to be silently installed so that their apps will work. You will find that there are several versions of C++ and it is not uncommon to have a number loaded on your system depending upon which apps/programs you have. You might be able to tell which app has loaded the C++ package by checking for matching dates of installation (see Programs and Features in Control Panel)

    Many thanks for the guidance, and I'll do just as you suggest. At least it is not harmful! Thanks again.
