    Every 15 minutes or so, the command prompt window flashes. It opens and closes so fast that I cannot read whatever it says. I have run various virus and malware checks, and I have looked for suspicious services. No luck.

    Any suggestions of how to find the cause of this?

    Thanks

    I would check Task Scheduler to see if anything in their is running it.

    Another option would be to install Process Monitor. This will create a log of evrything that runs on your computer. When you see the cmd window launch you can then look at Process Monitor to see what launched it.
