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...

 

Thanks...

 

Glenn

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

 

Malwarebytes is good for the malware and free to use.

For starters, either before or after doing a malware scan:
