Received "Windows Version Installer" EULA message

I got a EULA message today for some software that I'm unsure of. It says "Windows Version Installer". There was no exit from this, and I had to close it through Task Manager. Is this a legitimate windows message or was I right to not continue?

This is a virus related to VuuPC, I would run a full scan with your antivirus and also download MalwareBytes

https://www.malwarebytes.org/

Run a full scan with it also.

Another thing to add to Josh's comment above, what AntiVirus do you currently have protecting your OS? Reason I ask is 95% of them wouldnt have let you download or even install this malicious software.

Download and install Malwarebytes to ensure the infection is removed if that doesn't work try running Malwarebytes in Safemode without networking.

Also I recommend downloading and installing AVG Internet Secruity 2015 or even their free offering of their AV to ensure this doesn't happen in the future. Also be careful of the links you click on and things you download as sometimes these things can auto download and run (Which has happened to me a few times but thanks to AVG it wiped/remove the infection before it could manifest)

I use free AVG on all of my Mac's and PC's. In addition, on my PC's I also use Spybot Search & Destroy, CCleaner, and MalwareBytes. This usually keeps all of my system in good shape.

" try running Malwarebytes in Safemode without networking."
Most of the references I have seen say not to run MB in SafeMode unless Normal Mode is not working.  
For example:

jcimarron: that why i mentioned it after trying it in Windows normally. Just something which has worked for me in the past and not going off forums.
