It was a download of a new skype version and it is asking if I want to allow this program to make changes on my computer.
Expert:  Viet - Computer Tech replied 4 years ago.
Then it's not a virus; the system needs your confirmation to install the new skype program. Please install Skype, then let me know if there is still any issue . Thank you.
