    Since you're getting this with the latest version, I have to ask if you have also checked to make sure you have all the available updates for your Operating System? Also, have you run an on-demand scan to see if this may possible caused by malware?

    I have been experiencing the same problem. Window 7 Ultimate 64, ESET Smart Security 4.2.71.2. Happens randomly. All Windows updates are installed.

    Thank you for this, please note, you may turn the System Updates off, if so desired, if you have the feature enabled.

    Yes to both questions. On occasion, there has been a legitimate alert when a MS update was awaiting installation. It is the false popup that is the problem. It "feels" like the timing is a second or two off. The flag is thrown then cleared before the full gui is visible.
