    C:\Program Files\Common files\Updater\wupdater.exe <<< del Updater folder

    But you will need to stop the exe file running first.....

    You can remove the run key from the registry with regedit (backup the registry first)...then reboot....then delete the folder (NOT RECOMMENDED!)

    Or try try to end task with Ctrl-Alt-Del.....then delete the folder

    You could delete the folder in safemode

    DId you install any software recently? This could be like a screensaver or some other software?

    I'd also recommend running the following:

    Those three are the top picks for spyware/adware search, find, and remove software at TZ.

    Welcome to TZ. Hope that helps!
