One of our computers has a popup showing up in the system tray stating:
Software download complete.
It only gives me the option of install now or install later.  I'm hesitant to click on install because I do not know what it is.
Is there any program or way I can tell specifically what this popup is being ran by other than clicking on a potential malware/Trojan?

don't know what this is.

Sometimes, a related task tray icon is there. Is there an unfamiliar one?

Most likely Verizon update software if you have a phone from them.

See http://www.hardwarecentral.com/showthread.php?184809-Software-download-complete-%28Install-Now-or-Install-later%29

Now I can't guarantee that so it would be a good policy to run an anti-virus scan over your system anyway.
