      I have a new Windows 10 machine at work.
      The machine is a brand new Dell Latitude 7490 with Windows 10 installed.
      About twice a day I get a popup asking me to go to the Microsoft Store and find the application that will open the file “DCU.Centennial”.

      The pop-up says “You will need a new app to open this DCU.Centennial” and suggest going to the Microsoft Store to find the app.

      Unfortunately, I cannot get a screenshot of the popup because as soon as I click anywhere on the desktop, the pop-up goes away.

      Would this have anything to do with the Dell Command Update process?

      The tech team at work says they have seen this on other machines.
      Does anyone know what this is and why it is happening and what should be done about it?

      Grab the latest version of DCU here – it has a release date of November 19, 2018, but says it was last updated in February, 2019. Might be worth a shot…

      Thanks to @jabeattyauditor for the link. I downloaded and installed the latest version of DCU a day ago and so far I have not seen the popup. Since I didn’t necessarily see it every day, I can’t say for sure that the problem is solved, but I will keep you posted.

      SAD NEWS, installed the update and still got the popup today.

      Any other suggestions?
