I found this interesting for the exact message to be on both desktops at the same time? My computers are always on 24/7 and I have my security software run it schedule scans around 2 am since we are asleep figured it was the best time run it. I am not sure what is going on here, the only add-on was   Grammarly in google chrome. These computers are used a lot for web surfing on safe sites, facebook, yahoo, CNN and local news.  





I have EST Smart Security Premium and Malwarebytes running on both desktops? Is there a chance that I am infected? 


Ran Malwarebytes on one and came back good not threats have not do anything to the other desktop.

I presume you're running Windows 10?  Did the message look like what is shown here?


.. maybe it was installing the Win10 Creators Update at that time?  Maybe you have some software running that has a memory leak?  Might be worth restarting both PC's.
