Hello,

I am wanting to remove winupd.exe . . . and whatever else is causing problems on this machine. The file lsass.exe may be causing some problems too.

I have run Adaware, Bitdefender and Ewido. For an unknown reason my version of Spybot Search and Destroy has not been able to run, coincidently, since this latest virus entered my computer.

Thank you for everything.

-Bryan
