Windows 7: Additional Window Prompt Appears as Windows 7 is loading

Additional Window Prompt Appears as Windows 7 is loading

On my wife's laptop, I've noticed lately that as windows 7 is loading, a prompt appears on the desktop but is only visible for a few seconds. I'm unable to see what it says, is there anyway to see what it might be ?

Update: I think I discovered what the prompt was, I had this software installed on both my wife's computer and mine, . I didn't see the additional prompt window on my computer due to the fact I'm running windows 8.1, and I was booting to the 'metro' screen, when I changed my computer to boot directly to the desktop, I saw the same prompt appear. I un-installed the software and no longer see the prompt.

It sounds like a prompt when Malwarebytes trial period is over.

At that time you can choose to buy the Premium version or use the free version.

MBAE has a free and paid version. The free may still prompt you to upgrade.

I just installed it to try it.

Edit: No prompts of any kind yet.
