Sounds like it's trying to update itself, but not doing a very good job. Windows? Ctrl+Alt+Del - switch to the processes tab and look for Setup.exe & x.x.x.x.x to x.x.x.x.x updater (x==number) and terminate both processes. Both process names could be slightly different, I am pulling them from my porous memory.

Could be spyware/adware screwing over your computer. Download Malwarebytes and run a scan with that.
