How To Locate This ...

... started up my machine for the day and when startup was done this notification popped up (attached). I went to Device Manager and expanded all the entries looking for that little yellow triangle alert icon and nothing there. At a loss on where else or how else to proceed to locate/discover why this occurred.


-thx

Did you install any software or hardware recently?

Okay, try this. When the driver installation popup appears, run ProcessHacker. Now click the name tab so it stops auto scrolling. Look for the popup name and right click it. Chose properties and click the Environment tab. That may help clue you in to its location and where it's coming from.

Other than that, maybe a system restore will resolve this.

I do not see 'ProcessHacker' in my list of programs. As this is not a showstopper I will not do a restore. Anyways, as indicated by post#2 & #3, the message has not returned as a result. Today, I had another (related?) notification area pop-up (see attached) and this too (after a restart) has not returned. I think it's time to open her up and give her a bath of fresh (canned) air. I'll keep y'all posted.
