UpdateToold.exe

So this is a relatively new thing,

My computer seems fine, and according to Malwarebytes and MSE I'm virus free, but for some reason, every time the computer boots I get an error that states "Windows cannot find 'UpdateTool.exr'. Make Sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." and i have no idea what to do next.

I've looked on the Internet for similar things, but still nothing. I also went into msconfig to see if something there is out of place, but nothing seemed out of order.

Thanks again,
Eli

Somewhere somehow, something got messed up on the autoloading files.
Go to start -> type in 'msconfig' hit enter -> click on startup tab -> deselect update.exe -> press ok and restart

If it's not there other option is start -> all programs -> startup

p.s. probably some leftover from adobe


I dont have update.exe in the startup tab at all :(

Have you had a look in regedit? Check under Hkey_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Need I say be careful when doing anything in here? :p

Probably was a program that you deleted and this file stayed behind. Try a search in regedit for the suspect.

I'm out of ideas now, there are no other places for autorun programs to go to. I'd try disabling ALL auto startups in msconfig. If the error message is STILL there after then somethings wrong.

P.s. area51 why did you remove your link? I thought it was useful.
