This message pops up at the very bottom of my screen. I don't want to click on the "repair & Update) button. Is there a way to stop this pop-up?

Restoro is a system optimizer which is detected by Malwarebytes as PUP, meaning potentially unwanted program. These so-called “system optimizers” often use intentional false positives to convince users that their systems have problems. Then they try to sell you their software, claiming it will remove these problems.

If you want me to check your computer for malware, let me know.

Take your time and let me know. 👍🏻
I have experienced no more window repair pop-ups since running Malwarebytes as you suggested. Thanks again for your assistance and for taking the time to provide such detailed instructions.
