    Exclamation uninstalling codec-c and getting a Suspicious Behavior warning

    I'm getting this message:
    "SilentSetup is trying to install an application to run each time your computer is started"

    What is this and do I need to allow it? I say Deny and it won't uninstall the codec-c.

    Sorry really impossible to judge.
    The message is indicating that that software will install something that will run each time you start your PC. Are you happy with that?

    If you google "codec-c" there are plenty of indications that it is malware. But may be your file is perfectly safe. We can't assess it from here. Sorry.

    I suggest you contact a more generic security forum to get help on assessing how safe that file is or ask someone near you that is knowledgeable enough to help. We are all users here.

    Thanks!

    That's why I'm trying to UN-install it. It is giving me that warning. I was hoping someone knew about it.

    Then try to allow and see if it will remove it as the potential damage is already done. if not you will need to get assistance in removing it.
