    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: greatis.com/app…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.

    winupdatesme.exe
    WinUpd32.exe

    found where the files were in and ran adware on each single file and ran the virus on them....nothin dtected on them at all

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

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

    Its using around 48 in that one ^^^^^

    and giving out my email address in the process!! :-D:-D

    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.
