unknown pop up from ESET

Recommended Posts

Hello ESET Users

I just received a pop up window that with the following text in a blue rectangel:

User Account Control

Do you want this app to make changes to your device?

ESET Elevated Client

Verified publisher...

Program location...

YES                                           NO

I'm stupid with computers. I pay ESET to protect me from cyber threats!  What does this pop up mean and should I allow it by clicking "YES?"

It sounds like a UAC elevation prompt that pops up when you attempt to perform an operation requiring administrator permissions, e.g. when you attempt to change settings or run a scan as administrator. What were you doing before the prompt popped up?
