Windows Update brings virus on PC???

Hi all..

After a recent update, I found that 3 of my PCs running Windows 7 had Avira reporting a virus ( C:\Users\User\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\cmd.exe)

One of them , I also caught it being reported WHILE the update was being installed.

isn't this weird??

I'd run some online scanners to see if they agreed and I would look at Avira forums to see if this might be a false positive.

C:\Users\User\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\cmd.exe is not the real Command Line...if it was it would be in System32.

That must have existed from some other sources.
