Winupd.exe error message?

  lovehandles 22:00 26 Mar 2004

I keep getting a message flash up on my screen saying that 'Winupd has caused an error in WINUPD.EXE, Winupd will now close'

This seems to have started since I opened and e-mail attachement that appears was a virus. Can anyone clarify whether they think this is virus related and any suggested action?
Many thanks

Could be part of a dialler - click here and look at entry for windfind.exe.

Try spybot S & D or AdAware.

click here for spybot search & destroy

click here for ad-aware.

Install one of them, download updates first, and scan for spyware.
