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:
