Endless "Restart" Message
I don't believe this is any kind of a risk, but more of an annoyance. For several months now, each time my PC is rebooted or started, as soon as the Windows XP desktop appears, a window also pops up with the title bar "Restarting your computer is required" and message body "The computer must be restarted before updating can continue. Would you like to restart now?" The highlighted default button is "Yes" and there is also a "No" button. The first few times I fell for the ruse and clicked "Yes" and each time the PC rebooted, the same message would appear. Now I simply click the "No" button and go on about my business.
Does anybody have any ideas how this may have originated? And if so, how do I get rid of it?
