You should scan your system for viruses using first your own application. Then scan with Malwarebytes.  I think you will find you have a virus. This is not a normal message.

Try the following:

First run System File Checker. Run SFC /SCANNOW and allow to complete. Restart the PC.

Now download the network drivers for your machine and save it in a known location.

Uninstall the network drivers, restart and apply the new drivers downloaded above.

Then run TCP/IP Reset:  
Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator:  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

See if these steps help.

If not, there is some corruption in your operating system that will require a Windows Repair Install or Windows Reload (fresh install) to correct.
