I'm setting up this brand new Asus notebook and the 'Registration' windows keep on poping up. I tried to register it but when I click it, nothing happens!

I'm trying to remove it completely but there's nothing in the Programs and Features.

How do I stop this annoying pop up from Asus? It's Win8.1, of course.

Don't tell me to reinstall the OS using Win8.1 install DVD or USB flash drive as I've done all the Windows Updates and removed all (hopefully) the bloatwares.

.

It's a startup service. Disable the service first.

The main program executable is _853F67D554F05449430E7E.exe. The software installer includes 6 files.

1. Couldn't find the culprit in Startup service, only found this "ATKGFNEX", is this the one?
2. Where can I find .."main program executable is _853F67D554F05449430E7E.exe"?

Its what the net said...I would go into Services and scroll through - look for something obvious - referring to ASUS or registration....
Hijackthis should help find any exes too.....post the log if you can't see anything....

Found it in Task Scheduler - got rid of it, at last!
