This message pops up a lot and can be very annoying


It pops up in front of whatever program you already have open


It says that it will use the internet to find any updates that need to be applied to your already downloaded programs, this allows for viruses and malicous software to be downloaded aswell


The option to be asked later is the most annoying to me because it will continually pop up
