What is wupdater.exe ?

My Mcafee antivirus software recently found wupdater.exe on my PC and then said it couldn't remove it. My search on Google revealed lots of concern about this exe file but no explanation about what it does and, if necessary, how to get rid of it. Any ideas anyone?

Its spyware/adware , recommend you download and update Spybot from click here and adaware(free version) from click here .

Yeh, my son has used Kazaa on this pc. Thanks LionHeart. Incidently, there's also some indication on that link you gave that it's a Windows updater exe file. I'd have though that unlikely as there's no reference to it on Microsoft's site....and Cycose - my copy of SpyBot doesn't touch it either but maybe I need a later version. Cheers chaps.
