    Keep getting a dialog box with this message when booting up - windows 8.1, Toshiba Satellite
    The dialog box cannot be minimized, only pushed off to the side of my screen :


    START MENU UPDATED.
    The Start Menu was updated to the latest version.

    What's New:

    Critical fix for apps requiring Adobe Flash Driver
    Critical Fix for Start Menu
    Increased Battery life with performance improvements
    New dull-acreen start menu for touch screens'
    General bug fixes
    Updated Terms of Use

    OK ?

    When I click on terms of use it takes me to Sweet Labs

    What is this ?

    Note - we've been having problems with this PC recently. I have done restores twice to dates in early February. Wondering if this Sweet Labs is the culprit. The dialog box from sweet Labs will not go away unless I click OK

    I have done some snooping and I see that there is a program on my PC that can be uninstalled called Pokki Start Menu. What is this ? It is from Sweet Labs and I need to know what it is and what it is doing on my PC. Is it safe to uninstall ? Please help.
