More info on Autoupdatev2.exe

These are the steps that I usually recommend when someone reports a problem like this:

1.) Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
Let it scan your system for files to remove.
Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
Press OK to remove them.

2.) Update your virus protection, go into safe mode and run a full system scan.
Additional instructions on how to enter safe mode can be found here: How to start Windows in Safe mode.

3.) Run a couple of on-line scans. (from normal mode)

Trend Micro's online virus scanner
Panda ActiveScan

4.) Please download/install/update/configure and perform a scan with Spybot Search & Destroy and AdAware.

Follow all the instructions in the following tutorials:

Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer
Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

You could also run the Ad-aware and Spybot scans within safe mode.

If none of the above helped...

You could post a HiJackthis log in our HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum.
Before you do, please read the instructions in the Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log

Please be patient while a member of the HJT team has a chance to look at your log.

It may take several attempts until your log is clean.
