What kind of phone do you have? It could just be a system update!

A little more information is needed: What is the model of your Android phone? Are you seeing a green robot with its chest open and a rotating tetrahedral structure inside after you have restarted your phone? Or did your phone notify you of an update that is available and you had the phone apply the update?
Its from holding down a select combination of buttons, pull your battery and put it back in to restart it.

NO DON'T !!!! , if it's actually downloading and applying an update to OS and you do that in the middle of it you'll screw your phone up and have to send it in for repair unless you know how to root and ROM it yourself. It wouldn't be downloading anything from holding down the button combo it would just give you a list of options and if it is this just select cancel by moving up or down with the volume buttons and selecting cancel by tapping the power button.

Tummysink is correct. The phone was simply placed in download mode by accident by pressing the volume up button and power button simultaneously, quite easy to do on some devices. The list of options appear when you enter into the Android recovery utility and in most cases, requires a three button combination. Battery removal is the simplest solution.

How does that download anything, the OP said it was downloading something not just the recovery options?

Ohhhh I've never selected continue so I had no idea it downloaded anything or made it looked like it was, my bad. Thanks for the new knowledge guys I would have never guessed it would have said downloading if it wasn't downloading anything. Man is my face red 😕 I really have to start screwing around with rooting and flashing ROM's and such. Thanks again for the great explanation Timo I really appreciate it 🙂

No problem Paul and to add, I believe this is what you were referring to earlier: Stock Android Recovery Utility

I thought this is the screen they were talking about of the update installing with the robot like they described & the progress bar (not on this exact shot, didn't have one that showed the bar) some might think is something downloading, and right before this it says not to turn off or unplug the device until the process is complete.
