Most times that I boot up I get a Window headed as the above which I have to click to get rid of. Has anyone got any idea what it is and how I get rid of it please?

thanks

Is there an error message with it or is that all that it says?

That's all it says. The rest is greyed out including the button that I press to get rid of it.

I think that the only way of finding the culprit will be to disable startup items one at a time (or disable all except anti-virus then enable them one by one) click here

it has started since I began to use SpyCatcher which seems like a really good free program.

I'll disable that for a few days and see what happens.

Thanks VOG.

I've just rebooted twice and Spcatcher appears to be the culprit.

Does that mean that I'm better off not using it. It claims to have found 20 suspicious entries that nothing else has found i.e.

Backweb
BargainBuddy
DialerSwitchdialer

etc
