I hope someone can help with this issue...

I get a very unhelpful error message intermittently when I restart:

This app is preventing you from restarting.

There is no appropriate label for the application nor is there any legitimate icon - it's the generic icon for executables.

  • What steps should I take to begin assessing what this application may be?
  • Will you need any info of my machine other than the OS?
  • Maybe a short list of the apps I generally am running?
  • Or possibly an output from the command netstat -ano?

Thanks in advance
