This prompt always pops up after I log in after I power on my computer. It doesn't look harmful; I've yet to see any problems while I use my computer after I click yes.

What is it about? How do I stop it from popping up every single time? It's not much of a bother to click yes all the time..., and It just peaked curiosity.

Go here... http://www.file.net/process/fwupdate.exe.html .

It's an update program for the firmware in your DVD burner. The link tells you where it should be located so you can remove it if you want.

Probably the safest way to stop the fwupdate.exe from running at startup is to use AutoRuns for Windows.

You can safely disable the updater from starting. Simply uncheck the box next to the item.

 

It is part of LG Toolkit. LG Toolkit may be seen in the Add/ Remove program listing. Some have simply uninstalled

LG Toolkit without undesirable consequences. I think I would go with disabling it using AutoRuns.

You may have a CD ROM/ BlueRay player with a different brand name than LG but was actually manufactured by LG.

How do you disable it with AutoRuns?

Have you found an entry for fwupdate.exe or LG Toolkit? If so, simply uncheck the box to the immediate left of the entry.

 

To speed up your search for the entry, Autoruns' Hide Signed Microsoft Entries option helps you to zoom in on third-party auto-starting images that have been added to your system and it has support for looking at the auto-starting images configured for other accounts configured on a system.

 

Just click on the options button at the top and choose Hide Signed Microsoft Entries.
