I did a scan of my system with Norton.
(1) When the computer restarted there was a "Windows Installer" request "Preparing to install..."
(2) Then another window popup : 'User Account Control'
"Do you want to allow the following program from an unknown publisher to make changes to this computer?
Hard Drive on this Computer
When I choose 'no' the same window reopens, it freezes/greys my desktop and I only have the options to accept or not, again, behind/under that is a smaller window
A.F. 9 Replace some bytes 1.5
Preparing to install...
It seems if I choose 'no' three times then it stops requesting, until I restart my computer again.
Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Programs and Features
lists 'A.F.9. Replace some bytes 1.2'
I am unfamiliar with this program and don't remember adding it to my computer.
When I right click to Uninstall,
"Are you sure you want to uninstall A.F.9. Replace some bytes 1.2?"
I choose Yes, and the installer popup opens":
'Windows Installer' 'Preparing to remove...'
And I get the same User Account Control as (1) above asking me to install the program.
I don't remember installing this program.
I don't know what it is for.
Do I need to chose "Install" in order to "Uninstall"?
Grateful for advice.
