Sorry, rude of me but I hoped that detail of the actual message may explain a little further. Long story short, I unfortunately contracted a case of extremely pernicious malware, and despite the best efforts of the support staff at Eset etc, it seemed that it would not get dislodged. However, I did get some tremendous support from the malware forum on this site, and following a pretty intense process the problem was removed.
The final part of this solution was to run Combofix, which you will appreciate is a fairly intense piece of kit, and although it seemed to do the trick, I keep on getting little "niggles" with things which were not previously a problem, ie odd changes to file permissions / Windows Explorer "glitches" (it just stops & re-starts for no specific reason) / heavy CPU sometimes etc, etc.
So, I guess I may be a little "sensitive" to problems at present, but I have always kept my eye on the Event Viewer for any odd warning messages, and the one I just posted has started to pop up every day now.
So, I guess that explains the basis for my original question, although it would also be fair to report that the only problem / niggle I really have at present is the unexplained stops / re-starts of Windows Explorer, for which Microsoft hasn't actually reported any suggested solutions.
Many thanks & best regards,
