Update.exe is trying to modify a protected file or directory

Alright, a few minutes ago I started to get the following Defence+ Alert:

Update.exe is trying to modify a protected file or directory

I’ve been clicking “Ok” about 20-30 times but I’m still getting the alert…

Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
SP2
Intel Celeron CPU 2.60GHz
1GB RAM

That’s because it’s trying to update your files… Are you trying to update a program?

Update is usually Windows Update. Are you doing any Windows Updates or are they running?
