I'm using windows xpPro and since yesterday when ever i try to log off my computer or turn off the computer i get an error message stating that: "wupdater.exe has failed to respond"
a blue timer runs through and then nothing happens. I either have to chose "end process now" or end the process in the task manager before i log off/turn off the computer. This is really frustrating!
what is this wupdater? any help??

Thanks Chris

Got the same problem after installing some stupid screensavers yesterday. On my system, the wupdater.exe file was located in "Program Files\Common Files\Keenware". First, I uninstalled the screensavers. The program is run at the Windows startup so, second, I deleted the corresponding registry entry (using RegCleaner by Jouni Vuorio, downloadable for example from here: http://www.downseek.com/download/21692.asp), then deleted other registry entries for "Updater", deleted the Keenware directory itself and everything is running fine now.

The lesson is: don't fool around with useless rubbish like screensavers. :cool:

I have had that problem several times. I believe mine was related to some version of Norton AntiVirus since it was looking for the link in the Symantic directory. I first ram c:\windows\msconfig.exe amd unchecked the appropriate box and it fixed the problem, so I deleted registry entries to both wupdater and updater and everything is fine now. I also had similar problems with two programs called VirtualBouncer.exe and AdDestroyer.exe, both of which set up housekeeping in my root directory. I can't kill 'em as fast as they come in the door. ShieldsUp says I am Completely Stealth, but . . . .I finally switched from Win98 back to Linux and that fixed the problem. I think Microsoft must write these things themselves (Grin).

Hi

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

Or try try to end task with Ctrl-Alt-Del.....then delete the folder

You could delete the folder in safemode

Or you could post a HJT log and we'll stop it running that way...

I am having problems with wupdater.exe. And understand how to delete, but before I do, I'd liketo know what it is used for? :-|

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

Google it. There are plenty of references out there. That should always be your first step -- knowledge is power!

Hi, is there any restriction on the size of the message? I tried many times and could not post my log file! Can the owner help me? Thanks!

Sam

so do you have a comment with you Quote ??:)

0

I still cannot post the long log file. Could u please read it part by part?
I hope to delete my previous message and I could not do it. So the following will be my new log file. the new log file will look like part 1111111, part 222222, and part 3333333. Sorry for this.

The log file is obtained after I deleted the entire updater directroy in c:\program files\common files\. It is a litter better. But I still have problem to stop any process.

Thanks!

Sam

I'm using windows xpPro and since yesterday when ever i try to log off my computer or turn off the computer i get an error message stating that: "wupdater.exe has failed to respond"
a blue timer runs through and then nothing happens. I either have to chose "end process now" or end the process in the task manager before i log off/turn off the computer. This is really frustrating!
what is this wupdater? any help??

Thanks Chris
