I have a message that occasionally shows up after I log in:

Remote Connection
Could not connect to!


There does not appear to be anything related to it in Event Viewer; but since this usually occurs at login, there are a lot of events to look through.

Usually, if this shows up, it is if I wake the PC from sleep.

What is a good way to trap where this is coming from? Is there a way?

  • Do you use any kind of program to manage PC's remotely like Teamviewer? Do you have any remote desktop connections active? Are you using VPN? Maybe check out Task Scheduler and see if anything is set to run on logon.

    when the message is gone, you see an entry in action center with the name of the program which raised the toast message Nov 29, 2016 at 17:24
  • @Bungicasse: I do have a remote VPN for work. I do not work from home often though (only once, to date). Could that be causing the issue?

  • @magicandre1981, there is no message visible in the Action Center after the notification shows.
