Without knowing the contents of the error message, it's basically impossible to tell what it was.
It could have been a legitimate program which updates in the background. Or, as I sometimes do - something I started six hours ago and got distracted and forgot. Or there is of course a chance of something malicious.. If you're worried, run a virus scan.
When you get an error like that, depending on the situation and who you might send it to, you can:
- Take a screenshot (Press the print screen key) - you can then paste that into an email to send somewhere (not accessible, but potentially useful to a sighted person).
- On some dialogs you can press CONTROL+C and it will copy the text from the dialog. I only discovered that relatively recently. For instance, I just opened notepad, typed one character and pressed alt+f4. When the dialog querying whether to save came up, I pressed control+c. Here is what it copied:
Do you want to save changes to Untitled?
[Save] [Don't Save] [Cancel]
