    Thank you

    Howard,
    Thank you for your assistance, it didnt work straight away but after completing the list you supplied, I deleted the osaupd.exe file but there was no wupdmgr.exe file in windows, so I did a search and found a copy in the startup directory, so I deleted that and the prefetch file and left the one in the system32 directory.

    Thanks for your help, its a retched thing but now its gone

    Regards
    Rob

    That`s great news.

    It`s a good job you didn`t delete the wupdmgr.exe file from the system32 folder as this is a genuine Windows file.

    The wupdmgr.exe that was in your HJT was not genuine and therefore needed to be got rid of.

    Regards Howard :)
