Greetings experts at EE... I have been trying to find a 'real' solution to eliminating this awful flashing pop-up that I get on my XP system every 8-10 minutes. I have searched here, I have searched Microsoft's site, I have used Google and Bing, and yet, here I am, a month later, and still no answers.

I have run software like System Mechanic, Reimage Repair, PC Health Boost, PC Pitstop, Spybot and different anti-malware were programs.

I run Symantec Endpoint Protection 11 for anti-virus.

Anyone have any ideas at all? This damn popup is really becoming annoying.

I have attached a screenshot of the popup window for reference.
