What is this on my PC ??(wuredir.cab)

Hi team,

I don't know if this is a problem or not only over the last few weeks when I have been activating my BT Broad Band connection I have had this come up on the Nortons Virus scan,

wuredir.cab ..... it say's it is located in windows/software distribution.

I am no expert and I have looked to see if I can find this in the programming but as yet have had no luck.

I have heard a few story's recently of people on dial up having premium rate dialers downloading on them and naturaly it does make you concerned.
Can this sort of hi-jack be posible on BB ?

I have Nortons anti virus and Nortons firewall installed both up to date also I have Ad-aware SE.. everything appears ok.

Anyone have any ideas or advice please.

Thanks
Simon

Hi ,

IF it is wuredir.cab in
C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\WuRedir\9482F4B4-E343-43B6-B170-9A65BC822C77

it is part of MS redirect to Windows Update.

Needed to get windows updates.

Cheers

Mike that's it !!

It looks simple now but it has only recently started to pop up on the anti-virus check box.... thanks for that panic over.
It's amazing how something simple can have such a sinister ring to it.

Cheers
Simon
