Something popped up on my pc---it dowloaded something then shut my pc rt off.
The files were reconfigurated when i turned it back on.I ran adaware, noton, not there.When I looked in add remove programs i cant tell what is good and whats bad.This has happened twice
When i clicked it to close it it loaded and so fast I could not see what it was.Has this happened to anyone else?Any suggestions I would be grateful

It showed reconfigurating files the same as it does when you add a new program
Obviously something dowloaded that i did not request or want
A hacker do you think?If i could only figure out what was dowloaded but it flew by so fast could not see itWhen i tried to stop dowload no go

try looking in Windows / Downloaded Program Files. I only recently learned about this myself so sorry if it's a bit obvious. The file names there may not mean much but look at the Properties of each one and the Code Base should give you a clue. Also it tells you when it was last accessed.

Come back for a fix - there are some very knowledgeable people here. They helped me with somehting similar recently.
