I have been asked way several times how to fix this error and/or notification for those who update to Windows 8.1.

And I have been replying on an individual basis but now I came to conclusion it perhaps deserves its own post so more folks can benefit.

So, with no any other major introduction, here is the solution:

STEP 1

Download Auto Runs: Autoruns

STEP 2

Run the program as an admin and then find the yellow highlighted Image Paths that ends with sysmenu.dll from the “Scheduled Task” tab and the “everything” tab.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Be careful deleting paths that are not high lightened, you might cause problems booting your computer!

STEP 3

Right click then delete.
