Being hacked? Are /SPAWNWND commands safe?

Hi Guys,

I've done some research but can't seem to find a clear answer. I've noticed the commands "/SPAWNWND=$603D6 /NOTIFYWND=$604B0" after setup location paths - i.e. "C:\users\user\downloads\mbam-setup... /SPAWNWND=$603D6 /NOTIFYWND=$604B0" During Malwarebytes and a few other programs.

Should I be concerned??

Thanks in advance!

Looks to me like the installer program(ing)- shows up when you have UAC on. Try using an elevated install (Administrator)

SPAWNWND = spawn (open) a window (popup)

NOTIFYWND = Notify is the type of popup window (a notification popup window)

Read ClickHere and the notes underneath that say about it.
