I got a message from action centre this morning telling me to restart

I got a message from action centre this morning telling me to restart the computer to disable UAC. I have registered for windows 10, and I don't know if it's that. So I can upgrade on the 29th. Has anyone else got this message? As I am worried that I have been hacked.

Hmm, i think you should run MBAM. I think it might be a fake one. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

OK, I will do so . If the UAC is not fixed by this. Do you recommend enabling it again. Thanks again for your answer. I will have to do it later thanks.

It depends on you. If it finds a virus and removes it then perfect, it might remove that fake action center. Turning off UAC can cause a security risk.

It must be a virus. I installed new software. So it's got to be. Thank you.
