Hello ema609 and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Can you give us a little more information please. When exactly do you receive this message? Is it when you first turn it on (boot), or when you try to use a particular programme?
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
