THREATrating from user Still Uncertain for file %APPDATA%\SearchProtect\bin\AU\spupdater.exe (Variant: 17774508)
Better safe than sorry! Comodo calls it a "known threat". The guy above says its safe, just check Conduit's site, he says. So I mosey over there and cannot find the file "SPUpdater.exe" anywhere. So for me, until I find out otherwise, I'll treat it like a threat.
