Well I don?t know what exactly it is it can be a kind of malware well you don?t know how a malware can be named and hence I think it is a kind of malware that is present in your system your antivirus program does not detect it? Please check it by scanning the specific system space and see if you can get some threats warning from the antivirus there can be a possibility that it might be a malware so I am hoping that you have got the appropriate solution for the problem, hope it was beneficial for you.

Re: What is Egisupdate.exe?

Hey I have heard about this file and it is mostly present in those laptops who are having the acer laptop so I advice you to check out for the programs in the task manager you will get to see such kind of programs running In the system so that?s what I want to say here as such I don?t think so it can be any harmful program because it has not harmed your system yet so I think it is safe for your system, so better not worry about the topic if it was a threat for your system then it would have got easily detected buy the antivirus program that you are having.

That program comes with the acer/Mywinlocker programs and hence there is nothing to worry about the program it is the service that is being provided by the Acer people itself and hence you don?t need to worry about the topic. Well even I am having a Acer laptop and even I am having that program but I am having no problem with that file and hence you don?t need to worry about the issue so hope you have got the necessary suggestions on the topic. In case you have any other doubt then please do confirm it here.

MyWinLocker utilizes advanced encryption technologies to easily password protect your files. Make sure no one knows the location of your private files by storing them in the invisible Yo-Safe. Furthermore, the self-decrypting feature enables you to freely share files with your friends!
