File purpose and description:
This UdaterUI.exe software is a program that may have been preinstalled software but may also have been installed by you on the computer. The actual disk and folder location is listed below, please verify the folder location to show that your file is in the correct location and is not virus or adware related. This program is part of the McAfee protection software. This UdaterUI.exe software is called the common user interface software for the McAfee virus protection. Note that if you are getting a popup warning message saying "The file UdaterUI.exe is infected", you are actually viewing a fake rogue warning by a named "system security" rogue application. You may see messages like "WARNING! Application cannot be executed. The file UdaterUI.exe is infected. Please activate your antivirus software."

Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, udaterui.exe may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of udaterui.exe on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
