After Zonealarm picked this up, I did a search for "adbupdate.exe" on my drive and found that it is located in Program Files\IObit\IObit Malware Fighter\adsremoval folder and using zero processes.

I picked up AdbUpdate yesterday when I downloaded and installed something called Freecorder, a program for recording streaming radio.

I got a warning message when I installed the thing and allowed the installation to proceed. Freecorder was uninstalled within the hour 'coz it did not do what I wanted but this thing popped up this morning with Comodo's firewall saying it wanted 'unlimited access' to my pc.

No idea what it is but I was doing fine before it arrived and I will do just as ell once it has been deleted.

It's egg on face time.
I just tried to remove this thing and it's part of IOBIT's system security software. On my machine it lives in Program Files (x86)/IObit / IObit Malware Fighter /adsremoval / IE

No idea why my firewall should suddenly start giving me warnings about it though. I plan to uninstall IObit stuff and re-install just to be sure nothing unwanted is hiding among the good stuff
