Yep, the "wuaudt.exe" file is a component of the MS Windows AutoUpdate Client. Because the AutoUpdate process is always running if you have it enabled, it's supposed to be loading at startup, in the background.. Have you tried disabling Automatic Updates in the Control Panel? Can you "tell" A-Squared to allow the program and therefore stop the warnings?..
It's a safe file.
Hope this helps.
At startup, I often get an Alert from a-squared Anti-Malware 3.0. The file name the alert is flagging is C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuaudt.exe. The diagnosis is: Program tries to install invisibly.
Does anyone know what this exe is for?
I originally thought it was to install a Microsoft update that I had selected from the desktop MS icon. However, I get the alert even when I'm not installing any update.
I also noticed that the exe is a running process that's listed in the Windows Task Manager. It seems like the exe runs regardless of the Alert and what I select; Deny, Always deny, etc.
Also, when I select Deny, the same screen is displayed again and again until I select Accept.
Any information would be appreciated.
