We had a change/update to IE11 around April 2016 that caused Interactive Services Detection to pop up across multiple machines.  When we view message it is iexplore wanting user interaction to select default IE settings etc. It keeps popping up and is happening to all of our client machines.  Has anyone run into this specific issue and any ideas on a fix that I can apply across multiple machines?

You may have to disable Interactive Services Detection .
As offered earlier.

Can you determine if any particular app is causing the conflict with  Interactive Services Detection ?  Like is the popup occurring when you are running a specific app--especially any older one?

We are running webroot too, but I can't tell if that is causing anything.  I just know that all day long the Interactive Services Detection pops up and it's IE that is triggering it.

How do you know IE11 is the culprit?
Can you post a screen shot of the popup?  Did you switch to default settings for IE11 as suggested by the popup?  

Ideas to determine what If some other service or app other than IE is causing the conflict.

We have switched to default settings, in some cases, after a reboot, it does not come back.  In other cases, it does and it no longer gives you the option to select anything.  I'm attaching a screenshot.

I like the idea of stopping the  Interactive Services Detection service.  It is stopped on my PC.

Stopping Interactive Services Detection service is like removing a battery from a smoke alarm because it keeps going off. FIX THE FIRE !
