Informational message boxes from the Vista netherworld

Hello, I recently purchased (about 3 weeks) a new PC running Vista. I have
been tweaking this machine for a few weeks and now I have a new issue. For
approximately 4-5 days now I receive (I believe every 30 minutes) a
message box that states "Navigation to the webpage was cancelled" Then it
continues, "what you can try?" "refresh the page" The strangest thing to me
is that the message box does not contain the classic X for closing the
Window, I have to use task manager to dispose of the message box. To me,
this is a bug since I don't feel Windows (or any OS) should throw any errors
or informational messages that can't be disposed of. With that aside can
anyone tell me what this could be? I assume some program is doing something
in the backround to cause this but I am not sure what it could be and it is
somewhat annoying dealing with these messages.

I would look into msconfig for programs that may be trying to access a website for updates. I had a similar problem with Corel Draw 12 suite. After i installed it i kept getting a popup stating it could not find the website. I unchecked starting the corel program in msconfig startup tab and the popups stopped.
