    Hello

    I get the following error - it flashes on my screen every 10 mins - GREG error - This operating system is not supported by this application- after installing Windows 10.

    There is nothing in my Control Panel | Programs uninstall of the name GREG there.

    How can I remove it, please?

    Thanks!

    This is not a new problem. It has been documented.
    It also comes in Windows 8.

    The remedy is rather detailed and may be specific to a certain brand of computer. Read over the link and see if it applies to you.

    Summary: apparently the problem is on Acer machines. It happens with Windows 8 as well. The problem application is Acer Global Registration. Go to Programs and Features in Control Panel and uninstall it (GREGsvc.exe and Greg.exe)

      Hello

      Thanks for your replies.

      I think I may have resolved it on my Packard Bell PC.

      As I say, there is nothing about GREG in my Control Panel, but I removed the Packard Bell Registration entry there, and I haven't seen the GREG pop-up since.

      Cheers
