"An application is requesting access to a Protected Item"



I am getting this message on my older machine, which is running XP..

In fact, I have gotten it dozens of times. It was not until I realized that Alt + F4 would kill each of them quickly that I realized I could get through them in reasonable time.

I am not sure what is causing this, or its significance. It might have to do with a new version of Avast! free, or with an update of Firefox browser.

I usually turn down things that request permissions, because I am afraid of mistakenly giving malware permission to install itself.

What additional information, available to me, would help?

There is no identification of the app in the window-query. Most of the files are identified with symbols that are not alphabetic letters.
