This helps explain what a background task is:

This sheds light on methods of tracking your particular "offender"

This list demonstrates a couple background tasks in action:

Incidences of scheduled tasks running have been reported to trigger that message also.

That message would prompt me to open the task manager and check all processes running,
determine which applications were running from the startup (by using start>run>msconfig>startups tab or spybot>advanced mode>tools>startups). Viewing them, I'd try to mentally track back to the times
the message came up to see if I could draw a conclusion.

I might also open control panel>administrative tools>computer management>event viewer>applications & system logs to see what events were listed at the time the messages appeared.

Perhaps that'll help you. :thumbsup:
