Windows 7: ApplicationUpdater.exe

24 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, 64 Bit Build 7600

Hi guys! I need help..
I cannot delete this applicationupddater.exe that is located at my system at
E:\Program Files (x86)\Application Updater....
I already tried to delete it with FileAssasin and Unlocker but it won't be deleted..
could it be a possible Malware behavior?

Windows 7 32bit
I got this process from the pdfforge toolbar

I thought I had taken care of the problem from installing pdfcreator from pdforge by uninstalling their toolbar. It took care of another process called "searchsettings.exe" but I later found applicationupddater.exe as a process.

I got rid of it by stopping the process.
Then I ran the command prompt by typing "cmd" from the start menu, and before launching it, I right clicked on cmd.exe and told it to run as administrator. Then I changed the directory and deleted the files. I removed the directory afterwards and then I went through the registry, backed up the registry and removed all the references to that directory.
