Windows 7: "Brightness Down" pop up keep showing up

"Brightness Down" pop up keep showing up

Hello guys!

I am a new member here. And for my first post, I would like to ask why is the "brightness down" pop up keep showing up? It's so annoying. I tried to find a way to change the screen brightness manualy, but i couldn't find it. Everybody seems to have the "adjust brightness" tab in the display settings. But I don't. I'm not sure if it's something to do with viruses or something. So, i would like to hear the answer from you.
