zupdate.exe - Useless

zupdate.exe

Manual removal instructions:

zupdate.exe
A player for 'rich media' advertising. Similar to Onflow.
It's other names are Brilliant Digital (company name), B3D Projector (application name).
Apart from being downloadable from Brilliant's own legitimate-looking site, it is also stealth-installed by newer versions of KaZaA and other free applications.
It allows sites to use annoying advertising with 3D effects, sound, and so on. However, it does not add its own advertising to other sites.
The Projector downloads new components and updates silently.
Code-signing seems to be used, to ensure only Brilliant Digital can write code to be executed by the software.
The Projector has 3D functions, which are always liable to cause problems with some graphics cards and driver versions.

Removal:
You can use 'Add/Remove Programs' for 'B3d Projector'. And delete the directory 'BDE' inside your Windows directory, and the files 'bdeinstall.exe', 'bdeinsta2.dll', 'bdefdi.dll', 'bdedata2.dll', 'bdedownloader.dll', 'bdeverify.dll', 'bdesecureinstall.exe' and 'bdesecureinstall.cab' inside your System directory.
Also use RegRun Startup Optimizer to remove it from the system registry.

Jeff's Story:

My PC had gotten a bad rootkit that my ISP antivirus software (powered by McAfee) could not detect, nor could fix.

I sought a solution on the Internet and discovered your product and tried out the trial of UnHackMe.

You quickly found the rootkit and SAVED my PC!

I haven't had any problems since, and I'm extremely grateful.
