Why is Dyn Updater all of a sudden spawning 20+ UAC prompts on my computer?

mcdonamwJul 19 2021

I use Dyn Updater to update my dynamic IP. Has worked without issues. Now today for some unexplained reason, a bunch of UAC prompts were spawned by Dyn Updater regarding making some sort of change on my system.
I had to manually close some 20 of them. Then a few hours later it happened again.
The patch notes for this application say as of 2010 it was updated to allow non-admin users to perform some activities with the use of UAC prompts, but I'm an administrator on my machine and I've been using this for years since 2010 so I don't understand why this is occurring.
Anyone have any ideas?
