Is this message showing up when you log into Act?
It seems to be due to an Internet Explorer update, but there’s a quick fix.
Simply change your Act! startup view from the Welcome page to the Contact Detail view. To do this, open the Tools menu and choose Preferences. Select the Startup tab. Under the Views section, select Contacts and then click OK.
The next time you open Act!, your Contact Detail view will open first and you'll no longer get the annoying message when logging in.

Last month we talked about what to do if you use Act! and are thinking about upgrading to Windows® 10.
Although the current version of Act! (v17) is fully supported in Windows® 10, we strongly recommended performing a complete backup of your Act! database prior to upgrading Windows® as well as confirming that your drivers and other applications are also compatible with Windows® 10.
If you do decide to upgrade to Windows® 10, here are some additional recommendations to make your transition as smooth as possible.
For known issues and workarounds for using Act! v17 and later with Windows® 10, please visit Act’s Knowledgebase Article #38170.
Note: Previous versions of Act! may have issues with Windows® 10 that cannot be resolved; review Knowledgebase Article #38170 above for details. Future releases of Act! will be fully tested and supported on Windows® 10.
