How do I identify if my C:\Windows\system32\wuauclt.exe file is legitimate?
Posted on 2007-11-17
I am running XP Pro SP2 and still using Sygate as my firewall. This notified that Windows Update Automatic Updates had changed since the last time I used it and did I want to allow it access to which I answered yes. Sygate nevertheless blocked it and now the wireless icon in the notification area is continually glowing and the status shows it is receiving even though I am not connected. The file path in question is
C:\Windows\system32\wuauclt.exe and I note that *\wuauclt1.exe is also present in the system32 folder.
What should I do?
I have 3 screen shots that will flesh out the issue but cannot paste them here.
