What Is “There is a Recommended Update for this PC” Pop-up?
“Automatic Update. There is a Recommended Update for this PC…” pop-up is not actually generated by the Windows OS, it is caused by a PUP (potentially unwanted program) and its purpose is to trick you into installing more unwanted programs. This PUP had probably being installed on your computer together with some program you’ve downloaded from a freeware site. Another possibility is you’ve downloaded a file (PDF, video, etc.) from an untrustworthy site, and that file ended up to be a malware downloader (tip: if you double-click a file downloaded from a shady site and nothing happens, it is possible that a malicious process was just launched in the background). You may follow this removal guide to get rid of the PUP and stop “There is a Recommended Update for this PC” pop-up from appearing again.
