Thank you for your advice. It does help a lot. I'm not going to allow anything like that to access my computer in the future.

I wouldn't let an unknown publisher have access to ANYTHING, much less my drive. If it was released by HP I believe it would download automatically without notice or even asking you, because my HP support assistant crashed call of duty on me the other night while I was in mid game. Had to wait for it to get done before even starting to play it again. As far as it being legit I wouldn't trust it, if it is in fact something your computer needs it will get it sooner or later without your consent (much like windows updates how they take place) and sometimes its better to hold off on updates "newest" update isn't always the "best" update. New updates sometimes have bugs to be fixed. Hope this helps.
