    asquared tells me I have this worm
    http://www.emsisoft.com/en/malware/?Email-Worm.Win32.Runouce.b

    I googled and found it has been around a long time so how come my other security progs did not find. aquaredcsays it is at c:\program files\google\common\ google updater\googleupdaterservice.exe.

    I did create a gmail address would that be it? I have not used it except to send a test mail to see if it worked.
    Edit have looked at the file appear to have got it 1/8/2007 when I did not even have this PC till December 2007

    a-squared is known for quite a few false positives.

    Looks like a false alarm. Have you tried submitting the file using the submit option in quarantine? If that does not work, email the file to fp@emsisoft.com instead.
