Is this bad or just weird?

Hello! :)

I am obviously no expert. Using win 10 on a lap top. I haven't had any trouble and my AVG scans say it's all fine, but I have never seen this happen before, ever, in all the Win machines I've ever run and I've been using them since they were DOS only.

It is giving me this pop up window that says startup update has done blah blah blah... (see image) and it had a line that said to click to agree to terms etc, and set my browser to web search... and that seemed really odd. I didn't ask it to update anything, least of all that terrible start up weirdness. Annoying as hell.

So, is this a new thing they do and annoying but fine, or is this some sort of trickery-ware meant to get me to do something I'll regret? If the latter, what do I do about it? I ran AVG again and it just mentioned some app tracker data thing and nothing like I am describing.

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.

We need to know what's running on your computer so we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.

This topic will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:
  • FRST.txt
  • Addition.txt
  • Details of your problems.

If for any reason you can't run FRST, please let us know in your post.
