    I have a HP 2211X computer operating with Windows 7 and have not/will not upgrade this one to 10 which my laptop has. When I boot the computer I get a message requesting permission for WkUFind.exe to make changes to my computer. For years I replied yes but now say no because I am more suspicious nowadays. I have tried to locate the program on my computer but cannot find it. Is it friend or foe. If foe, then how do I delete?

    A simple web search suggests it is a friend...
    "An automatic updater, WkUFind.exe runs as a background process for Microsoft Picture It! When installed, it is set to start with Windows and check a Microsoft server for any available updates. If one is detected, it is automatically downloaded and installed."

    Thank you very much. I can now go back to checking yes.
