my computer received about 10 requests to edit User Account Control as commonly seen in the dialogue box that JavaScript or Windows uses to install an update or add-on around 3:10 pm ET on june 20..


except that where it says Program Name: was followed by "setup9839820983.exe" or something to this extent, i regrettably did not write down or print screen the exact file names.. i know it began with 'setup' and was followed by a string of numbers. each number was different after i clicked 'No'

i assume it is a virus or something.

all requests were back-to-back, and i clicked 'No' each time successively. i am not very computer savvy, i am just posting this to see if others had similar circumstances around the same time because this is an anomaly to me. maybe they just want me to update something


this is my introductory post as well, though ive perused the site much and frequently.


any thoughts??

I don't think this counts as an introduction.

Sounds like a virus or spyware. Run your anti virus and spyware program afterwards to clean your computer. When you see this type of activity pop up your computer is already affected.
