this window should never be visible

Hi all, it's been a while since I've been here, however, I have a problem with my Windows Vista laptop.

I have turned it on this morning to be greeted with a small window in the centre of the screen that says "this window should never be visible" I have run Malwarebytes and it finds nothing and it does not seem to be effecting the laptop, but it is annoyning.

Does any one know a way of shifting it please?

Regards....John

Perhaps try a system restore? Strangely, I saw one of these the other day while installing something - I forget what - but it disappeared as soon as it had appeared.

Thanks Ian,

I re-booted the laptop and window seems to have disappeared, for the time being, at least;o) strange though, I can't imaging there being something in windows that shows up the same as that was (why would there be a window open that says "this window should never be visible") It's as bad as adding in an e-mail "if you don't get this mail, give me a ring;o)"

Cheers....John

Put it down to programmers' sense of humour...
