That seems to have been the issue. I know my way around computer settings; I don't know why this one was so hard to find and didn't come up in my other searches. At the very least, thanks for reminding me about the sysinternals tools.

Autoruns did, however, find something trying to fire "Adobe Update Manager". I've turned it off and fingers are crossed.

I've scoured the registry for other instances of "Adobe" to no avail.

For what it's worth, Malware Bytes and Avast both came up empty in a scan for malware.

Unfortunately, Eusing doesn't seem to have found the registry key either. The error is still there.

I ran the registry repair in CCleaner which fixed some missing .dlls. I checked to see if there was anything Adobe-related in the "Start" options. Unfortunately, it seems there's a bug in the latest CCleaner because it's running out of memory and aborting whenever I do a regular analysis.

I did the cleanup as above. All I had installed was Adobe Reader DC. I deleted the Adobe directory under Program Files, and for good measure removed the Adobe directories from Users/{user}/AppData

Process Explorer is telling me that csrss.exe is the process which is generating the message.
