Automatic Updates

I have been getting notices from "Automatic Updates" to download the Malicious Tool almost everyday. Do I go ahead and download or just ignore? Thanks!

Why would you

want to download a "Malicious Tool"?

Does that not suggest that something is wrong?

Please give more information. What Automatic Updates? Windows?

If it is Windows, (from Start > Windows Update), please ensure that the web site address, the url that Internet Explorer is connecting to is exactly the same as the one below;

http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/v5consumer/default.aspx?ln=en-us

If the http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com is different, or if there is a ?redirect command in the address, then perhaps you are being sent to something "other" than Microsoft's Windows Update site.
