Secunia updated 4 programs yesterday.
I use Windows Vista, Internet Explorer 9

Yesterday, Secunia updated several programs, Java JRE, Mozilla Firefox, Adobe Flash Player, Microsoft XML Core Services, and while successfully updating, a button appeared in my taskbar and on my desktop printed completely in Asian text.. I was able to delete it only by clicking Ctrl, Alt, Delete and highlighting the running program and deleting it! I then ran several scans, both virus and other, including a special Microsoft Scanner and everything appeared to be clean. However I am concerned about the safety of those updates. Also noted that my add-ons seem to have duplicates since yesterday. Example:

Was my computer exposed to serious breaches by allowing Secunia to download the updates? ANd what precautions do I need to tak? The Asian buttons refused to close simply through clicking my cursor.
