    Definitely sounds like a virus. I found quite a few hits on google relating to virus's that attempt to copy itself to winupdate32.exe. Best run an up to date virus scanner.

    Check for Viruses with online scanners:

    Trend Micro --> http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
    BitDefender --> http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php
    RAV Antivirus --> http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
    Panda ActiveScan --> http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
    McAfee Security --> http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp


    then download this program and post your log close all programs before you run
    and dont fix anything for now
