    MSI throws interrupter into any screen

    How can I stop these unsolicited black MS-DOS-like panel interruptions from appearing? They come and go in a flash. Using PrintScreen I have caught them a few times. They come in threes, a few seconds apart up to a couple of minutes apart. They are always aligned with the top of the screen, anywhere from left to right. The third apparition I believe is always blank - as in attached .gif screenshot. The second apparition has detail - this one refers to the registry - please see attached cropped .png screenshot.

    In all cases i've managed to catch, the title starts c:\WINDOWS\Installer\MSI. This latest one (the .gif) is titled MSI231.tmp, and when I tracked it by Search Everything it was found in WINDOWS\prefetch as MSI231.TMP-1FF020C9.pf

    It appears you have some malware that is automatically installing itself with a different name. Run complete malware scans using your favorite tools.
