Hey,

Thanks for getting back to me. I tried what you suggested and got the following message :

"The script cannot repair the issue. The expected registry value was not found."

Have you scanned your computer for malware? Here's some free, online scanners:

If you've recently removed malware, this may be a remnant of it (it can be benign, or it can be a symptom that something's still wrong)

Hey, thanks for that.

To be honest, Ive not got a clue what Im looking for or what I should be doing with it comes to the systems/registry files.

Is there any way someone can talk me through what to do? Id really appreciate it,

Ross

The Kelly's Korner fix mentioned by tg1911 is essentially the same thing as the Microsoft fix - just that Kelly's Korner wrapped it up in a .vbs file for ease of use.

Since that didn't fix it, then the free online malware scans are called for.

Once that's done, then we can move on to trying to stop the window from popping up.
