I can't guess if it's from an update or software install. I'd rename it and see what effect it has then delete it. You may find such from time to time but the one advice I'll give is to NEVER run an executable you find lying around the PC. You never know exactly what it may do.
If I was my machine I'd check the times on the files if I was going to think about it but this would have been tossed pretty quick here.
Can anyone tell me about the following?
I have a folder on my 80 Gig HD that is named with the following Alpha Numeric:
The sub folder has an Install Icon from Microsoft tha reads:
update.exe on HD for Windows Service Pack Setup Microsoft corporation.
I am not sure how long it has been there, but for some time...and when I attempt to click on the UpdateIcon (which is a small computer with software box) I get a warning window that reads as follows:::
"update.exe - unable to locate component....this application has failed to start because UPDSPAPI.dll was not found..Re-installomg this application may fix the problem"
I have looked on the Internet under the UPDSPAPI.dll, but there are to many possible anseres....can someone untangle this, and my system seems to run just fine, do I dare just delete it???
System: MSFT Windows XP Professional, Ver 2002 SP3
