I'm getting the following pop up/window in windows 7 pro:
a program is trying to display a message-> ask me later/view the message (rutserv.exe)

If i press view the message i see a login window with my remote utilities id. If i press return to windows the login dissapears.

Is this normal? Is it a matter regarding user policy/rights... or is it maybe a security issue on my pc?

It's similar to that:

If i press show program details it mentions the rutserv.exe file.

Next time i see it i'll grab a photo. It doesn't happen very often.

This is a Windows feature called "Interactive services detection". Looks like you have this feature enabled on your computer.
