I keep getting a User Account Control pop up thats asks:
Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?
program name: UpdateFlashPlayer_fff4e2la.exe
file origin: hard drive on this computer
everytime it comes up there's a different program name for example: UpdateFlashPlayer_db2bab0d.exe
In the last week a program called My Clean PC showed up on the desktop without me even downloading it. or i should say downloaded without my knowledge. I have not clicked on it or ran it for fear of the problem getting worse
the PC takes a while to start up, most of the time i am unable to print anything, clicking on programs or even links there seems to be a 15-20 second delay. web browsing is very stop and go, sometimes it will only freeze for about 10 seconds or so other times it will freezes to the point where shutting down can take ages. While it tries to shutdown you can see flashes of open web browsing windows that are open in the background being close that you don't see when using the computer. so something is opening multiple web browsing windows in the background. All the while this updateflashplayer keeps popping up.
I'm using Windows 7 with firefox.
any help would be appreciated
