    Of late there has been a random "exclamation window" (I call it that because the only thing I can make out on the message is that Yield sign with the exclamation in it). It pops up with about a paragraph worth of writing in a message, but it disappears so fast that I am unable to read it. So far my computer functions fine, but I don't understand anything behind this mysterious message, furthermore it bothers me more that nothing is happening to my comp because it doesn't really make sense as to why I would have this strange occurrence. I don't even know what to call it anymore.

    Can someone please shed some light on this?

    is there anything I can do to find this message?

    Naturally, it's easier to diagnose if you can read the message, but let's start with this:
    1. Launch Activity Monitor
    2. Change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes"
    3. Click on the CPU column heading once or twice, so the arrow points downward (highest values on top).
    4. Click on the System Memory tab at the bottom.
    5. Take a screen shot of the whole Activity Monitor window, then scroll down to see the rest of the list, take another screen shot
    6. Post your screenshots.
