Process Explorer should be able to show you which process is creating that window.

See this post for more info.

Drag/drop the icon shown below on to the popup window:



Process Explorer should highlight the process responsible for generating the popup window.

I would look closely at the settings in there and see if there is something designed to "help" you which you can turn off.
I really don't have any adds or anything, I mean I can show you if you don't believe me. I experienced similar ads but on the actual browser and never on desktop like this.
Maybe it was the title of your thread which led me astray...

Well, that is something else. Might be adware or something.

Try opening Control Panel > Programs and Features > Uninstall or Change a Program thingy, then check out the programs. If you found a program you didn't remember installing it, GET THAT THING AWAY FROM YOUR SYSTEM.

Some programs include suspicious names with weird spaces and numbers and letters, or names such as App Remover, Stackstackstack, Sandwich maker or something.

Just curious, have you run msconfig to see what applications and processes are starting up with your computer? CCleaner's free version also offers a way to check this. The use of both tools is discussed here:

Good luck!
