Hello,

A very similar problem has been solved here. The only difference is the file location/name. The solution should also work for you.

Alternatively I found this solution from the Microsoft answers page. The best answer/solution is below.

'That is the remnants of malware that has been removed from your system by Defender or your chosen Anti-virus package

You should run a scan with the free version of MalwareBytes to see if it can remove this errror message . . .

DOWNLOAD Malwarebytes from CCM.

If that does not remove this annoyance, here is a way to stop the popup.
  • Open File Explorer
  • Go to C:/Users/Public/Libraries/
  • On the View Ribbon make sure you can see file name extensions
  • Create a new text file and add this text to that file:
  • WScript.Quit
  • Save that text file, then rename it to (change the txt files extension to vbs):
  • Checks.vbs


That's it, restart your PC and that annoyance will be gone.'


Let me know how you get on!

Best
