I downloaded a burning program called Alcohol 125, but when I began to install it, I got a warning that it was not compatible on my PC configuration. So I immediately stopped the process. I did a search to see if there were some files I needed to delete/uninstall. Now whenever I log on, there is a window opening up that says the new hardware I am trying to install might compromise my PC. I have to clear this window and another Wizard window before I can proceed to do anything.

Is there anyway I can keep these from opening? It also claims the new hardware I have might not work correctly. I was under the impression when I stopped in installation of the Alcohol program that nothing would be installed. So am confused as to why I am being told about the new hardware I have installed not working correctly.

Can advise?

The latest official version of 'alcohol' is 'alcohol 120%' so you may have started installing some 'rogue' software which although you aborted it may still have installed some malware. Your best course of action I think is to download and run 'HijackThis' and post it on the malware forum here:
