Hopefully this is what you're looking for;

While 1
If WinExists("") Then
;If ProcessExists("") Then <- Better Solution
   WinClose("") ; Closes the Window based solely on the Window Title
   ;ProcessClose("") ; Closes the Window based on the Windows Process.exe name
   WinWaitClose("") ; Wait until the window is closed
   ;ProcessWaitClose("") ; Wait until the window is closed via Process Close
   MsgBox(0, "", "Window X has been closed", 10)
ElseIf WinExists("") = "0" Then
;ElseIf ProcessExists("") = "0" Then
   MsgBox(0, "", "Hey Jack, That window doesn't exist!", 10)

Just fill in the blanks

Thank you for posting.

Very nice, your script solved my problem.

This pop-up window is no separate process, so may not be achieved by the process of closing
I think it would be better if you use WinGetClassList, because my window title is: Microsoft Windows, it is easy to repeat with the other windows.
If you use the check window title and class methods, as it should be more accurate?
However, I am new AU3er, I can't write the script.

That's correct, In that case using the window class would be more accurate. Though, You don't need to do WinGetClassList since you already used the Au3Info tool. Try WinExists("[CLASS:#32770]"). Based on the Windows Info you provided, That should work.

Very good, using the class can close the window.

Thank BlackDawn187, your script has helped me a lot, I've decided to use your script to solve my problem.

However, I still want to learn how to use WinGetClassList can solve this problem, the following is my script, however, does not work, please help me.

Local $aWindow = WinList()
Local $hWindow, $szTitle, $szCLASS
For $a = 1 To $aWindow[0][0]
    $hWindow = $aWindow[$a][1]
    $szTitle = $aWindow[$a][0]
If StringInStr($szTitle, "Microsoft Windows") Then

    If '[CLASS:#32770]' = WinGetClassList($hWindow) Then


Also, add in what position, when the window pops up, close it, and then quit AU3 exit.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Thank you BrewManNH , but my situation is not the same with that.
This window is after the LAN diskless client starts, the virtual partition is loaded pop-up window, I tried: CHKNTFS / X volume; Disabled ShellHWDetection services; CHKDSK command;
Stop gpedit.msc in the autoplay option can not solve my problem, so I want to use AU3 solve this problem.
