EDIT: It just did it again. Here is the second window
I did a google image search on your nag screen and it came up empty. Wonder if its not really microsoft at all but some malware on your computer.

From what I can see it appears legit. It happened after a Microsoft Update, no virus detected and no maleware detected. No browser hijack detected nor any rootkits.

Same thing is happening to me on both my Win7 computers and my Win8.1 computer - also no malware detected.

has anyone tried just giving in to the nag screen, that is, allow it to have its way by saying yes to whatever it suggests? Then reboot and see if the nag screen has gone away. And only then, manually resetting your home page/search provider/etc back to what you wanted.

I unchecked all the pre-checked boxes on the nag screen, then pressed "save" and have not been bothered since. Hopefully that took care of it. But, don't forget to uncheck each box first or it will change everything to the pre-checked MS recommendations.

Same thing has been happening to me for the last few days. I've just been closing the tab and moving on. If it persists I'll do some more diags and try to find a fix. It seems to be a bit sporadic.

OOPS. . . It started again!
Unchecking the boxes had limited lasting effect. Yes indeed it is sporadic, but persistent . . .

EDIT.
After affirmatively responding to the first additional popup tab by unchecking the boxes and pressing save and having another popup tab follow, and responding to it in the negative (rather than just xing it out) the problem seems to have gone away. Either this of just via time elapsed the problem seems solved.
