That sounds logical. When I try to get the Windows Chooser, there are no windows. This happens rarely so its hard to figure out what is behind it.

This usually happens because the OS or some app is trying to make changes that 
require authentication.   It's odd that the message doesn't re-appear upon 
reboot.  We need to determine if there is a password field or some other dialog 
that is present when this is heard before we can come up with a solution.

  Sometimes I get this message after booting El Capitan. I have to force a shut 
down as I cannot access the menu bar to do a restart and if I try to invoke the 
Application Chooser, that is when I hear the above message. What causes this 
and can it be fixed?
