Hello,

I have had this error message now for about 7 months. Reinstalled windows 10 did not fix it, I have Avast and Windows Def. They are not picking up anything.

ABC DEF Error Box (asked Microsoft in short they don't know what it is)

So the error message. It comes up after opening different programs or games. To get past it I have to obviously press "ok" or the X in the top corner. Sometimes this box opens again and again then it stops.

Microsoft mentioned that it could be bot, they have only had 7 people world wide report this before.

Hi James,

Might be a faulty advertising program. Try installing and running:

and Lavasoft Adware Antivirus:

Hopefully they will find and remove it.

I don't even own Calll of Duty, like I said no one has heard of this before i cannot believe it.
It happens to any program I open on my PC.
