I am concerned that the task SecureUpgrade may be malware.  However, I have run AVG Free and TrendMicro HouseCall and both indicate that my computer is clean.  Also, its name suggested that its somekind of auto updating program.  I am very diligent to avoid auto updates. My best guess is that SecureUpgrade was installed when I installed SecureZip, which I had proablems with and later uninstalled.  I'd like to verify that SecureUpgrade is useless to me and get rid of it.

SecureZip is a legitimate program. That SecureUpgrade may be from another company (Wave Systems Corp.) which you found. As far as I know, SecureZip is from PKWare. Both are legit. If you don't use any of the program anymore, you may uninstall it via the Add/Remove Programs panel.

I rebooted and the passowords max icon reappeared in the system tray.  End of panic.

Thanks for the suggestion.  I went to Add/Remove programs but SecureUpgrade was not listed.  Also, SecureZip is not listed because I uninstalled it about a month ago.  But, thanks to you clue, I found that Embassy Trust Suite was listed in Add/Remove programs; I also determined that SecureUpgrade is a part of Embassy Trust Suite.  So I uninstalled Embassy Trust Suite and rebooted and my problem seems to be solved.

Thanks a lot,
PS:  I pretty sure that Embassy Trust Suite (and SecureUpgrade.exe) were required by SecureZip as I as required to obtain a "comodo Secure Email Certificate" as a part of the SecureZip installation/setup.
