Hi,

Yesterday I started getting a pop up that seems to be asking if I want to allow a Remote Computer to access my system. I've included a screen shot of the pop up as well as one of the Certificate it lets you view. It pops up over 100 times a day. Obviously I'm concerned someone is trying to access my computer and would very much appreciate your assistance getting to the bottom of it.

Much Thanks,
Soulsister

One thing that I would do is get rid of Kaspersky Free and stick with Windows 10's built-in Windows Defender Security Center.

Submit an image of the "Programs And Features" list so we can see what installed apps you have.

Okay, thanks for moving me and if you really think Windows Defender is best I'll switch. But what can I do about this remote computer trying to access my system? Appreciate the help!

that isnt a remote pc trying to access your machine, it is the certificate of the site you are visting. My guess is that it is GDPR related but it is not anyone trying to get into your rig. Unless you are trying to access a site that requires personal info I wouldnt worry about it.

thanks,

v

Thanks valis. I did a windows update and restarted and the pop ups have stopped. Good to know it was harmless. Appreciate you looking into it.
