    I recently bought a lenovo laptop with windows 8. I play a lot of online games and there is a popup that comes on a lot in the background, if i click on where it is even if its not in my view it'll minimize my game... not really helpful when i'm trying to do something. it is telling me that my computer is ready to back up, seeing as i don't really care how can i disable this annoying thing. Thanks :D

    Online games, you mean games on websites? Use Firefox and Adblock Plus.
    If you mean multiplayer games, the popups are caused by a malware on your computer. Get rid of that.

    Did you download any so called "Plugins" as a requirement to play these games?

    As you normally don´t get any install media for such laptops, it´s asking to make a full system backup :D.

    Recommend doing it before something happens to the system.

    Otherwise check Library in Task Scheduler, a lot of those processes is started from there.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
