Express Bios update for DX58SO board - post update issue

Greetings... minor issue, not a show stopper but can't figure out how to get rid of this. After running an express BIOS update (which seemed to work great), the next time I rebooted my machine a tidy INTEL-generated window popped up to inform me that the express BIOS update was completed successfully. I expected this popup...

...However, the interesting thing is, it seems as though my computer has decided I'm a complete moron and that I need to be constantly reminded that the BIOS has updated successfully. So every time I boot/reboot my machine, after the machine spins up I'm presented with the badge of honor again:

Some quick details: this BIOS update was the one JUST posted for DX58SO... I have two custom built Vista 64 systems using this board and they run very well... treated with TLC and some decent IT-backed knowledge. ZERO issues to date (about 1.5 years now)... But this one has me stumped.

Any idea how I can get the friendly reminder to switch off?

Thanks!

Well, I'm not a desktop expert (they all hang out at http://communities.intel.com/community/tech/desktop http://communities.intel.com/community/tech/desktop ), but dumb question - have you tried reflashing the BIOS?

It sounds like there's a flag that's supposed to auto-clear itself, that got stuck somehow.

msconfig.exe and uncheck the box might help.
