Solution Title: What is aupdate.exe??

asked by SteinStein on 06/10/2003 06:22AM PDT 


My norton has brought to my attention that this is a backdoor trojan.  When i go in to my window32 folder there are 4 files aupdate.exe(this is the file the scan says is the trojan), aupdate.conf, aupdate.tkr, and aupdate_uninstall.  Now here is my question upon reading a few forums i have seen that many post that have said that aupdate.exe is a norton file that does not start up. Now should i delete the aupdate.exe file, use the uninstaller, or is there another way i should get rid of this?

Ditch the Norton AV and get AVG AV.


it's free, works great and never bugs me or interrupts. :D
