Sounds like a trojan to me

Edit:

a quick google returns these results for WinUpd32.exe

winupd32.exe
Winupd32.exe is a mass-mailing worm [email protected]
Winupd32.exe tries to terminate antiviral programs installed on a user computer.
Winupd32.exe opens a back door on a random TCP port.
Related files:
%System%\winupd32.exe
Adds the value:
"Windows Updates" = "winupd32.exe"
to the Windows startup registry keys.
More info: http://www.greatis.com/appdata/d/w/winupd32.exe.htm...

im sure winupdates.exe / winupdatesme.exe is also a trojan, sounds like a remote program for hackers.

no idea what WinZilla32.exe is though, is this somthing you have installed?

I would highly surjest to run anti-virus, ad-ware scans asap.

and i ran Avast anti virus....nothing

those trjoans arent actually running just now hmmmmm maybe thats why its not picking them up
[helper]#3
winupdatesme.exe
WinUpd32.exe

try something like trendhousecall or malwarebytes, spybot search & destroy.

in future use something better than a free AV and you'll notice the difference

Not a computer expert at all I'm afraid, but I use Nod32, Spybot, Adaware and the Microsoft malicious software removal tool that I downloaded from the Microsoft site. That claims to pick up quite a few nastys, so maybe download that and give it a try?

have you run your av etc in safe mod? tends to be more effective. also i once used an avg rootkit tool once when i struggled to remove a trojan. worked a treat.
