A friend has a computer that seems to have suddenly acquired a pop-up. It says "Microsoft HTML. Application host is restarting with a progress bar beneath it. This bar is not moving and he can't close the page. When he opens a web page this pop-up stays on top.


Windows 10 operating system


Any ideas on this topic would surely be appreciated...

Have you done a virus/malware scan on the machine in question?


Malwarebytes is good for the malware and free to use.
