Hello, have you recently removed malware prior to getting this pop up?

Hi there,

it seems that there are some rogue broken startup programs trying to launch at startup of your windows

Goto Start>In search type MSCONFIG> Goto Startup and look for this startup item, (if you can expand Command tab, you'll find the "C:\Program Files (x86)\user exe"). Uncheck that Box and restart... it should probably fix that pop-up.
