    What is chkupd?

    I have Win 7 64 bit - runs fine, however several times a day I get a popup telling me that Windows doesn't know which program to use to open chkupd.
    Well nor do I - I've never before heard of chkupd. Can anyone help please!

    Neil,

    I don't know the answer to your problem but it is a very bad idea to use your email address as your UserId. If I were you I'd change it immediately.

    Do you have Daemon tools installed. It includes chkupd.exe. If you have it installed and are not using it, uninstall it.

    I don't think this "chkupd" (no extension) is likely to be from DAEMON Tools (which uses chkupd.EXE).

    I think this one may be from a Scheduled Task titled Trusted Software Update: chkupd with no file extension

    RetiredGeek - yeah, thank you! I just overlooked that.
    jwitalka and Clint - no I don't have Daemon Tools, but thank you for responding.
    BruceR - You did it! I have a file opener tool from Trusted Software, and removing it appears to have solved the problem.
    Thanks everyone!
