These look like they could be Secunia PSI, or FileHippo update warnings, (depending on your version).
Have you checked for updates on PSI (or similar) to see if there is an update needed ?
If it is not from one of these programs, it may be a minor infection -
Post back after you check Secunia PSI for update rating, and include your Antivirus program -
Thank You -
EDIT - Revo is currently 1.95 not 1.9.5 so all seems to be a bit wrong ...................

PSI shows all programs up to date for a score of 100%. My AV is Microsoft Security Essentials. My antimalware programs are S&D 2, MalwareBytes & SuperAntiSpyware along with some antirootkit programs. Most of the security & maintenance programs I use can be found in the downloads here.
I clicked on the settings button next to the close button to see if I could get any info, and all I got is this.
I didn't want to uncheck the "Enable" box because the alert is my only indication of the offender.
BTW I'm beginning to agree about S&D. It seems to have gotten awfully bloated.

It's been about five months since the last reply to this topic. I discovered a program on my PC last night which, through a Google search, is described as displaying similar behavior to that I am experiencing. It is "tsassist.exe." I found info at
which had a link to removal instructions here.
It said to uninstall "File Type Assistant" in Control Panel and then, in regedit, to delete every instance of tsassist.exe. I uninstalled the program using Revo Uninstaller and then deleted every registry key I could find which included the name tsassist.exe. It's been almost 24 hours, and I haven't gotten any more of these alerts so far. It has been very frustrating. I hope I have seen the last of this usless program. I don't even know where I got it.
Hopefully others can benefit from my eperience. Thanks for the help.
