"webscanx.exe" is part of McAfee VirusScan from Network Associates, Inc.
I installed service pack 1 and installed all the updates listed except service pack 2. I also followed links and downloaded vundo fix last night while waiting for your latest reply and it found and deleted alot of .dll files i ran it at regular boot and in safe mode until it found nothing but pop ups are still an issue......here is my new log after the windows updates.......i am now getting an intertnet explorer error about my webscanx.exe file asking if it should send a report to microsoft it did not happen before the updates.
For more information, see WebScanX.exe and Why do I Receive a WebScanX Error Whenever I Restart My Computer? or Can I use Internet Explorer 6 with VirusScan 5?
McAfee's Web and ActiveX Scanner. WebScanX was originally available as a separate product from McAfee's antivirus products, but with web use now prevalent everywhere, it is nowadays integrated with all their antivirus products. The WEBSCANX task resides in the background and scans your Internet downloads for viruses; it also provides you with e-mail protection by scanning e-mail attachments, and, finally, it also watches out for malicious code in the Java and ActiveX applets on the web pages you access.

Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without user's approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad". This may change, read Viewpoint to Plunge Into Adware.
To provide a satisfying consumer experience and to operate effectively, the Viewpoint Media Player periodically sends information to servers at Viewpoint. Each installation of the Viewpoint Media Player is identifiable to Viewpoint via a Customer Unique Identifier (CUID), an alphanumeric identifier embedded in the Viewpoint Media Player. The Viewpoint Media Player randomly generates the CUID during installation and uses it to indicate a unique installation of the product. A CUID is never connected to a user's name, email address, or other personal contact information. CUIDs are used for the sole purpose of filtering redundant information. Each of these information exchanges occurs anonymously.
