    Since I've had mu MBP 13" 2012, about 5 times day a message window comes up, but it only lasts about half a second so I can't read what it has to say.

    Don't know what it is.

    Do you happen to have the OS X firewall turned on? There is a pop up window related to the firewall that asks if you want to permit a certain app to allow incoming Internet connections. You have to click allow once for each app like this, but I have noticed some apps the warning pops up quickly then goes away during subsequent launches.

    I'm not sure - where would I check?

    Click the Apple at the top left of your screen then System Preferences, then look in the Security & Privacy panel under the Firewall tab.
