I'm running Windows 7.  I had a strange action center message popup that said my mobile phone driver was missing and that my mobile phone is an LG CDMA.  I don't have that phone and I've never connected a mobile phone to this computer.  Any ideas?


This is the exact message: 

Download and install the driver for your mobile phone

Your mobile phone is missing a driver.

G'day nottoday, and Welcome to BC.




Seeing you have never had a mobile phone connected to the PC.......that message will most likely be MALWARE.


If you click on the link....I can guarantee you will be infected.
