I have just noticed the above Zip programme has appeared in my Windows/temp internet folders.

From my initial investigation I find that it a auproto is a windows auto update file, but also their are some hint that it can be hijacked and used for other means.

Can I/should I delete

Has anyone any other info on "AUPROTO" ?

and additionally how do forum users manage auto update programmes?

Sattman, as far as I can see, this file is some sort of demographics/stats file for windows updates, and it were on my pc I'd get rid and keep a close eye to see if it reappears.

Not sure whether you mean this, but in your programmes options you will be able to set your updates man/auto, some programmes bring up a window to tell you that updates are available when you are on the net, it's just a case of configuring your program software.
