Did anyone else randomly have their google drive background app get replaced with one called "Backup and Sync?" I now have a new program in its place and I am very sure that it is malware of some sort. When I run the program I get an immediate error message that I have attached in the picture. It is clearly not google who would write such a confusing message.

I am scanning my computer with everything I have and so far none of the programs have realized that it is unwanted.

Do not follow their instructions and send any sort of e-mail to them.

I will update  with more information about my process of getting rid of it as I go.

The update  is legit so no worries there, however it is horribly broken. Google is working on a fix.
