    NOD 32 keeps turning off Windows XP Automatic Updates. Any way to stop this? :confused:



    Thanks in advance

    I've been using NOD32 for over three years and have never heard of that (but I don't allow Automatic Updates so I wouldn't would I?).

    If you don't get any useful answers here, try posting at the NOD32 Forum over at Wilder's Security Forums; http://www.wilderssecurity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=88

    \WINDOWS\system32\msupdate.exe


    NOD 32 claims it is a variant of Win32/Injector.DG.trojan.

    This unrequested shutoff of my auto updates has been happening two weeks before NOD detected this.

    Any ideas on this? It's Quarantined. Late night so I'll google it in the morning. I'll turn on updates and see if NOD turns them off.

    I looked in my Vista machine, and there is no msupdate.exe file in Windows\System32
