    Periodically windows pop up on my machine and disappear instantly before I can read what has popped up. I'm fairly familiar with ridding my computer of spyware/malware etc and am pretty sure it has nothing to do with that.

    I've checked the system event viewer in the hopes of learning what's going on, but I'm a novice and have no idea what any of the messages mean. Can anyone help me? Do any of these messages mean I need to fix anything and could these things be related to the popups??

    Security notices:

    Special priveleges assigned to new logon
    Successful logon
    IPSec Services: IPSec Services failed to get the complete list of network interfaces on the machine. This can be a potential security hazard to the machine since some of the network interfaces may not get the protection as desired by the applied IPSec filters. Please run IPSec monitor snap-in to further diagnose the problem.

    Application notices:

    wuauclt(3200) The database engine stopped
    wuaueng.dll database engine stopped the instance (0)
    wuaueng.dll database engine started a new instance (0)

    System notices:

    the telephony service entered the running state
    the application layer gateway service was successfully sent a start control
    the application layer gateway service entered the running state
    the remote access connection manager service entered the running state
    the windows image acquisition service was successfully sent a start control
    the windows image acquisition service entered the running state

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
