Hi everyone,

I have a relatively clean install of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit, and all I've done is install motherboard drivers, flash BIOS, install updates and other random drivers like for my printer, etc. Whenever I boot into windows I get a little message saying "no update available". I thought it had to to with the @BIOS flashing utility because in the taskbar, the icon for the message window looks like it. I uninstalled @BIOS and it still comes up.

In the task manager, the process is called GTPupdate.exe or something.

Any idea what this is? It's just kind of annoying but it's not malicious at all.

Nvm I found it!

It was just a gigabyte utilities updating tool, located in Program Files (x86). Changed the settings to update weekly instead of every boot...
