    Got a strange Windows 10 pop-up this morning...


    Hey there,

    While using my computer this morning, I got a Windows 10 popup on top of my screen (taking the full top from left to right) saying that a Galaxy S4 phone wants to connect to my computer (I have an S6 BTW) and there was an "Allow" and "Deny" button. I wasn't able to click anything and the pop-up went away. I turned off my PC, unplug the ethernet cable to boot it back on. I went in the event viewer, there was nothing out of the ordinary.

    This could not have been a wireless connection to my computer since I have no Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connectivity on that desktop computer. Any idea what's going on here?
