Hi there @JhonnySmit

Each case is being taken to ticket due to account-specific info that's required to further investigate the behavior that each user is experiencing. 

For this reason, I'd be more than happy to send you a ticket to the Community-associated email address so as to troubleshoot, if you'd like. 

Let me know if this is okay with you to proceed.

Hey @TommyWong, thanks for the nudge; have you by any chance been able to update your drivers, following the steps I had included in my initial reply to the OP? If so, could you let me know of the outcome in your next message here if possible?

I downloaded the driver update from Intel and installed. After reboot, the dropbox no longer shows the concerned message
