strange warnings from scotty
« on: March 22, 2015, 01:48:42 PM »
I keep getting strange warnings from Scotty for new startup programs, see picture. All is mentioned is a 10-digit number, different each time. Winpatrol doesn't seem to offer additional information. It's very annoying, could a virus be the problem? I have Commodo and Avast installed. I checked with ADWcleaner, Malwarebytes and JRT: nothing strange found.

Hi, pjgkuipers.  Welcome to LandzDown Forum.

The start up program is most likely from Adobe Reader. Please see this discussion:  Annoying new Start-up Pop-up consisting of only numbers like 1418382140
