I have Zain Broadband software for internet usb and this file is located as follow on my pc (same for windows vista and 7):

C:\Program Files\Zain Broadband\UpdateDog\ouc.exe

This file is for the software live update checking. It works by showing and hiding periodically as a batch cmd black screen and is very annoying. It appears that its cycle settings are here:

C:\Program Files\Zain Broadband\UpdateDog\LiveUpdate.ini

I tried several times to remove it from startup processes but in vain! It also gives an error in the screen: argc is error!!!!

I think this is a very bad design of a live update process built by HUAWEI Technologies Co. (

It confused me for long time until I discovered that its not a virus or trojan or hack!
