are you opening a microsoft program? if so some programs from microsoft need to run its automatic installer and download some things, or is this the first time it's ever happened and youve opened these other programs before?

I think you have some form of the W32 worm. Same thing happened on the comp I worked on the other day. Some installer window would pop up for a brief second then go away.
