Hi mcrmg,

Check info on Notifyalert.exe here

ONly if you want critical alerts then you need to enable this.
you can disable it , if you need to

When do you get this error.. when the system boots up
if yes
start --> run --> msconfig and go to startup tab
disable the exe if you find it in that location

check this

He said that when he was using Excel.

But now I am scanning virus on the laptop, I got that, too.

And I checked the first link, it is a Dell machine.

Common issue on dells

C:\Program Files\Dell\Support\Alert\bin\NotifyAlert.exe is dell support file.
u can rename this file with something like oldNotifyAlert.exe and see if it works.
or simply uninstall the Dell Support and Dell Solutions applications.

check this thread.
