    To fix this issue.
    Open up the Sygate console menu.
    Click Tools -> Options
    In the [General] Tab place a check in the Hide notification messages block.
    Click OK and close the console.
    No more notification messages will appear. The Icon will flash red on Severe Alerts. Click the Icon for more information on the alert.

    Unless there was a typo (twice), this could be a piece of malware.
    ntoskrnl.exe is a legitimate part of the Windows OS. ntkernsol.exe is not.

    Doh!

    I'm going say it's a typo but I'm not home to check. The reason I say it's a typo is when the Sygate Pop Up Notified my I did a google search and received numerous hits. I just googled ntkernsol.exe didn't receive any.
