Part of the McAfee antivirus software, handles updates. Some versions (VirusScan Enterprise 7.1) may cause error messages about PSAPI.DLL with IE7. Solution: rename ...\Network Associates\Common Framework\PSAPI.dll and reboot the system. Martin

Updater takes memory I need for doing my job as an engineer, sometimes chokes and takes huge amounts of memory, and in general reduces computer productivity. Personally, I feel it is just anohter one of the many tools MIS departements use to reduce productivity and increase their self-importance. Andrew Jenkins
When I am editing text, my cursor will stop in mid-sentence. I have to go to the task manager and end the UpdaterUI process in order to continue. It is a memory hog.
looks like virus definitions updater for McAfee VirusScan Enterprise, although harmless, it can load your processor quite heavily from time to time Rix
