    Check this and this out. It probably depends on the context of the message. Is your firewall asking you? A particular application?

    Thanks for the reply, The firewall did not ask. I just recovered my laptop, I went through the installed program and try to uninstall all the non essential programs as my experience is they actually bundle some of the malware in the new computers!!! I just want to have what is necessary running in the laptop.

    Ah yes, pre-installed crapware can be very annoying. If you have the opportunity and time, reformat your drive and do a fresh install!

    Actually, it's a fresh install. That's the reason I went in and try to get rid of any unnecessary programs. I know they bundle craps into the laptop. But in this case, after I read more about, sounds like I should leave it alone. It's not doing much as this is a personal laptop, no networking or any complicate things, the program should not be in the picture.
