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

You can either choose to remove updater.exe and other malwares using Comodo Antivirus, or Comodo Cleaning Essentials (CCE) – both of which are absolutely free to download! CCE is a set of computer security tools designed to help you identify and remove malwares and unsafe processes from an infected computer.

To remove malwares using CCE, take the following steps:

1. Check the system requirements and download the feature-rich CCE suite for free.
