Exclamation Wierd Processes

Hey,
They last month or soo i have notices this process winlogonupdate.EXE in my running procceses. It is not a system process. I have googled it and cant find anything on it but every once and awhile, like every 30 minutes when browsing the internet the internet stops working. Then when you end that process it works again. Any Ideas??? Thanks

might be someones bot or trojan and infected you try going to start run msconfig and then processes and see where the file is or search for it if its in progy files i would delete it.

in msconfig like modder said by pressing start, run, then typing msconfig. choose selective startup, then in the services tab it should be fine to untick the ones which arent microsoft (click in hide all microsoft services), although that file you said which is creating the problem sounds like a microsoft file so search and untick it, check in the startup tab to, apply that then restart when prompt appears.
