Don't do that!!

Not at least until you identify what it's causing it. That option will attempt to run the program with administrator privileges, and if a virus it's the root cause, you for sure won't want to give it full access to your computer. Be sure before entering your password in UAC.

Download and run ProcessExplorer. It does not need to be installed.
Drag-and-drop target to find an image. If you're not sure which application corresponds to which image in Process Explorer, click and drag the little gun sight icon on the Process Explorer toolbar, and drop it on any visible window to find out what process/image it is.
Once the error message is on the screen, start ProcessExplorer and drag the target icon and drop it on the error message window. It will show the process that generated that window highlighted in blue in the PE window.
