Back again, I'm not sure if I'm too paranoid or something's really up much too often. Today, the permissions box for the following came up:

 
Program: User Accounts Control Panel
Publisher: Unknown
Location: this hard drive
 
I clicked "no" for permission. I googled it and read it is due to the UAC settings. But I've never changed any settings. So the question is, am I infected?
 
Thank you.
 
Edit:
A few notes:
Also, a few days ago MBytes found PUP.azlyrics.A infecting chrome in two files. It was removed. System seems to be running fine. I have Norton Security installed and it runs scans daily.
PC is Windows 8.1.

Well we may as well just get a deeper look and be certain.. We need you to re -post.

Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Thanks. I get an error saying the program is not meant to be run in compatibility mode. Is it a Windows 8.1 problem? What should I do?

Sorry yes, I see you have 8.1

If you cannot get DDS to work, please try this instead.

Please download RSIT by random/random from the link provided for your operating system and save it to your desktop.This tool needs to run while the computer is connected to the Internet. If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding RSIT attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection.
  • Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop.
  • Double-click on RSIT.exe to start the program.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Read the disclaimer and click Continue.
  • When the scan is complete, a text file named log.txt will automatically open in Notepad.
  • Another text file named info.txt will open minimized.
  • Save the log files to your desktop and copy/paste the contents of log.txt by highlighting everything and pressing Ctrl+C.
  • After highlighting, right-click, choose Copy and then paste the contents into a new topic in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here.
  • Copies of both log files are automatically saved in the C:\RSIT folder which the tool creates during the scan.
Important: Be sure to mention that you tried to follow the Prep Guide but were unable to get DDS to run.
