A "Shutdown Windows" dialog box randomly appears. The latest release and patches (as of 01/11/2021) are installed. We're seeing this on various PCs. No pattern noticed, only that it appears when users are on the PCs.

exactly the same issue, HP omen - AMD
I have this problem too. The Shut Down dialog appears totally at random, many times a day. No discernable pattern or reason. Just clicking on the taskbar will dismiss it for a while. Very strange behaviour.

This is the only conversation I have seen referring to this issue, I thought it was just me! Glad I'm not the only one, though.

Windows 11 Home, AMD Ryzen 9 3950X CPU.

@20Y_windows_userThank you, didn't see that one when I searched before. Looks like we have two threads going now.

Same Issue :(
Same issue, Intel i5 with Geforce, Windows 11 Home Edtion, Chinese Language.
Looks no way to reslove, but it affects me randomly.

In the last week my Lenovo laptop (Intel i7, Windows 11) has begun popping up windows randomly and disruptively preventing me from getting work done.   It includes "Privacy and Security" window and the "virtual keyboard" window.   It will also take my mouse cursor and move it to the upper right hand corner.   If I shut down the machine and restart, it goes away for a little bit but then comes back.  I work without the track pad.  I have that turned off.   I'm using a Microsoft mouse.   I tried changing the mouse thinking perhaps the mouse was going awry.   Unfortunately that didn't help.  What are my options to resolve this very disruptive issue?
