I have SBS2011 and I keep getting this popup windows whenever I log in to the network.

* Please see attached for sharepoint update message and updates applied.

I found some some articles regarding the message, appied the updates on SBS2011, and rebooted it twice already. But when I log into the network, the same message still pops up .
How can I get rid of this?

Thanks.

Have you run the psconfig command as instructed, and if so, how long ago?

Then don't sweat it. When you haven't upgraded, several events are written to the event log on a recurring and regular basis. the alert is triggered if it sees one of several events in your event log within the last 24 hours, which you are still well within. As you did the actual upgrade, the events are no longer occurring, so the old events will eventually drop outside of that 24 hour window, and the alert will stop popping up. This is one of those "just wait" scenarios. Tomorrow should be fine.

Cliff,
 
 They are still popping up today.
 What is exact syntax of the command you think I should run? Here is what I ran.

C:\Windows\system32>cd "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Serve
r Extensions\14\BIN"

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN>PSCo
nfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd

Open a powershell command window and type the following command:

(get-spserver $env:computername).NeedsUpgrade

It'll return True or False. Please let me know the result.

Okay. Then you should be fine. The popup is created by a scheduled task that runs every 24 hours. In *very rare* instances, I've seen when the psconfig was run right AFTER that task so events trigger the popup for another day. Technically it is possible for the pop-up to linger for 47 hoirs and 59 minutes if you are unlucky.

So, are they STILL happening?

If so, then please check the event log for any critical sharepoint errors. It is possible a non-upgrade related health error is tripping a false-positive for the pop-up.

Yes they have stopped appearing when I logged in this morning.
Is this (PSConfig.exe) some type of routine that I have to run periodically on SBS2011?
"PSConfig.exe -cmd upgrade -inplace b2b -force -cmd applicationcontent -install -cmd
installfeatures"

Also what is the purpose of Sharepoint? I have never used it.

You will have to run the command whenever there is a Microsoft update that changes the sharepoint database. So you may go months at a time without having to run it, and then one month there will be a security update that requires it (and the pop-up will return so you know this.)

As far as what sharepoint is, that is a long answer. The short version is it is a way to organize information, documents, etc and allows staff to collaborate more easily. I think every business CAN benefit from Sharepoint if they start using it. Grab a book on sharepoint (I think the "sharepoint 2010 step by step" from MS Press is a good start) and playing with the features in the company web website That SBS creates. You'll probably like it.
