Is the computer new and what does it ask you to register, if it your XP operating system if you don't register you will not be able to use it properly after 90 days.

Can we assume that it hasn't always done this?

Did you install software or hardware before the message started to appear?

its only done it since i reinstalled everything

Well, I can only suggest that you register and then the pop up should go away.

Try running adaware first from click here just in case otherwise do as VoG suggests, you didn't answer is XP your operating system if so it probably needs a re register.

Good point.
