cryptic open company error with Start and Cancel buttons

We have QB Premier 2020 Desktop - We've been using QB at this location for 8 years.  

Since QB Premier 2018 we have been using a Windows Server and Desktops to access files on the Server.   Only one of us connects to a file at one time.  We do not use Multi-User mode.  The Server runs QBCF Monitor Service and QuickBooksDB30 both on Automatic Startup.  Both are running today and both were stopped and started and the problem below still re-occurs.


When we try to open a company, we are now getting an error shown in the attached jpg file.  The ASCII text is different every time.  We're concerned about clicking Start since we don't know what we are starting.


Has anyone else experienced this cryptic error?  If so, what did we do to make it happen and how can we stop it!   What does the error mean?


Thanks in advance for the help.
