Is ASUSFourceUpdater (32 bit) a virus?
Something popped up that looks suspicious. I checked with ASUS and they say it's not one of their programs. In TaskManager, it's listed as ASUSFourceUpdater (32 bit) and it's not a program I have installed anywhere on my computer. According to support at ASUS it's definitely not one of their programs, but there was a clear attempt by someone to make it LOOK like ASUS has a "critical update" for me. Virus scans by Norton didn't pick up anything on my computer and as I mentioned, it's not installed and I could "end task" without issue. I haven't really downloaded anything to my knowledge of late except for updates to games that already exist on my computer and those updates came from the game developers through their software, not a new download from a site. I'm pretty careful even with security updates, which is how I caught this, but I haven't seen anything on the internet about it at all really and in addition, Norton Security hasn't indicated any problems, even with a full scan. I'm trying not to panic about this, but I'm wondering how a program could attempt to run and install on my computer without triggering something with my up to date Norton product. If I caught it and did not allow it to run, am I safe or what should I be doing now?
