Windows 7: Occasionally a random button without window appears

22 Nov 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit
Occasionally a random button without window appears

I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium.
Until now I thought it was a title of a Windows 2000 window (contrary to the windows theme I use) :

It is not a process and windows doesn't give it focus, so no input like Alt+F4 can interact with it. It is always in the foreground but does not appears in the taskbar.

I cannot tell if it is linked to a windows service somehow because I have dozens of them, half without description in the task manager and I don't know what they all do.

I ran Antivir and Malwarebytes multiple times and neither detected anything, I cleaned my registry, and even restored my system and it changes nothing.

Usually when it appears I can temporarily get rid of it with a normal reboot.
It appears only occasionally usually one or more weeks between each time, completely arbitrarily.

Does anyone know what with this and how I can get rid of it?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit

I clicked on it so often that it crashed, it's Avira's own ipmgui.exe / in product messaging and it somehow fails to load properly, probably cause of adblockers or so.

Occasionally when I boot up my computer, it doesn't get past the MOBO screen and POST, after I press the reset button once, it usually works. I don't think I have had to press it twice. But like I said, this doesn't happen often. USUALLY it happens when I turn on my computer after it is shutdown...

I have Windows 7 x64 Ultimate with Logitech G930 headset. I don't know if it's relevant that I have that particular headset or not, but I don't have any other speakers on my computer or another headset so I'm unable to test this with my RealTek drivers. It seems that whenever I turn my computer...
