Hello all!

I have a problem with my laptop. It keeps "resetting".

It pops up a window that says "This program is no longer requiering attention. The message might have been one that required no action such as quick status notifiction. Windows will notify you if the problem reappears". It appears after every minute or so. It's majorly annoying when I have something on the full screen as it makes the window go back to the taskbar.

It started happening after I played a game on full screen and often exited the game, leaving it on the taskbar.

I thought it might be a virus so I ran an anti-virus program. It didn't make a difference.

Help!

Hello I am not certain what this is either so Lets see if we can get something from the Action Center.

Open Action Center by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, and then, under System and Security, clicking Review your computer's status.
 
look here or more ... What is Action Center

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

In the action center
Look at either the Security or Maintenance section... click on the heading
See if there are any messages there and report them here.
