I have Windows 7 Home, and I can't find the Updater.exe folder either. I've scaned with Kaspersky and Malwarebytes and cannot find it. I'm looking for a solution, too. Thanks for any help!

I keep getting the "Updater.exe has stopped working" pop-up several times a day. I have scanned with SuperAntiSpyware, Avast, and Spybot and none of them find this Trojan. I made sure all of them were up-to-date before scanning. I don't have a C:\Windows\Updater.exe folder, and it's also not listed as a process in Task Manager. I am running Vista home edition. Anything else I can do?
