Unidentified Update If Completed, Reboots Computer Repeatedly

When I start my system, approx. 3 minutes after boot, an unknown "update"
window pops up with a completion bar and a cancel button. It completes
really fast and, if I don't cancel the update, it will reboot only to do the
same thing over and over.
If I cancel the update the computer will run normally.
Where is this thing coming from??? It has no identifying words or logos...
I am running current Trend Micro anti virus and Spybot software, neither of
which seem to find any anomalies.

Go to Start/Run, and type MSCONFIG then look at the STARTUP TAB, to uncheck unwanted, checked items
