Hourly 1 sec Powershell pop-up w/ error minimizes games

Like the title says. Has been happening since last week only; no new updates or software was installed. Cost me a few game matches actually. It is a known issue however no solution I have tried (the most radical one being removing all commands that provide the error when trying to call to their home server to get the thing to install, from the queue which is now empty but it still happens). It's not a virus either.

I'm hoping there's someone here who's had the same thing and was able to solve it.

Haha. I have had it happen in Project Cars. And seen a small pop up now and then.
But have thought much about it

I had the same thing. It turned out to be a scheduled task. Its (not a joke) called "OfficeBackgroundTaskHandlerRegistration" in task scheduler. Thanks Microsoft. Its included in the stable build of Office. For some reason. They've fixed it in the preview build already. I've turned mine off for the time being (although it does arguably do a important job). See- https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...0-461cd2c3ea13

I've changed it to not run unless the computer is idle.

Yeah I was getting that too two days ago. Hasn't happened again since then... Weird... There was one time that CCC did that too... Could be anything. If I were you I would install superantispyware and run a scan just to be sure

Theory is when you have the "know how" but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined: Nothing works and no one knows why

Disabling that thing worked! If you were a beautiful woman I'd put out for a bag of peanuts but since you're not, a big thanks will have to suffice!
