PC tools irritating popup every time I bootup
See attachment for this popup that comes up EVERY time I boot up windows, not once, not twice, but thrice!

I recall when I would do a reinstall of windows that it would happen once but now this thing comes up every single time, not sure why.

As a test try..
Under settings in PcTools Firewall>click on Network>untick 'prompt on new network detection'
Set 'default profile for new network' to Home.

See if that helps - you can always reset it back to the original setting.
