  1. Is this legitimately from Microsoft or is it Malware?


    Yesterday I started getting this popup below, again and again. Is this actually from Microsoft or is it malware? I am suspicious because it has no option to exit without taking action.


    I have now found a way in Settings to pause updates for seven days. If I keep getting these popups, then should I assume this is malware? If so, that's another problem because my McAfee scan said it found no malicious software.


    Hoping someone can clarify this for me.


    Thanks,

    Doug Connor
