|Update about wupdater.exe for Window 7. The malware/spyware stucks Internet Explorer and FireFox browsers. Google Chrome is more safe for some protections but also compromised. The malware stucks also Second Life viewers. wupdater.exe is a malware by White Sea Media (do not visit the web page of it). The malware is allocated in: C:\Users\*name of user*\AppData\Local\Temp\wupdater.exe. The antivirus Avira Control Center does not find it as virus. You must put the exe file in quarantine but it is still in the unknow folder of registry. The subfolder Run, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE is not findable. Davide|
|When you give CONFIRM program turns - I do not know what it is, anyway, the process of "live", but after an hour it will prompt you to re-confirmed when you reject you again after about an hour invite you to a patch / confirmed by demented + certainly will not be safe for deletion "wupdater.exe" after a while again restores a file is there again!
