Windows 7: Bogus Windows Security pop-up

Windows 7 Professional
Bogus Windows Security pop-up

I get this popup several (many) times a day even though I am logged in and receiving email.

What is this and how do I get rid of it?

Hello gkendall and welcome to Seven Forums.

From what I could find out, this is a legitimate program from Microsoft. It was designed to be a replacement for Windows Messenger and is meant to be used in an office/corporate environment.

If what you have really is a legitimate program you should be able to uninstall it from control panel > programs and features unless this is installed on a company computer by an IT department.
