How to remove SUBUPDT.exe malware from system using Comodo Cleaning Essentials?

You can either choose to remove SUBUPDT.exe and other malwares using Comodo Antivirus, or Comodo Cleaning Essentials (CCE) – both of which are absolutely free to download!

To remove malwares using CCE, take the following steps:
