Superantispyware found C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA\UPDATUS\PACKAGES\0000XXXX\UPDATUS.XXXXXXXX_RUNASUSER.EXE

The 0000XXX and XXXXXXXXX are random numbers. There's 22 of these. They're false positives I'm guessing?

Hello Cas. Lets get a second opinion.
To get a second opinion, submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, browse to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

If a detection is questionable, you can submit a file(s) directly to SUPERAntispyware for further analysis as follows:
  • Launch SUPERAntispyware.
  • From the Main Menu or system tray icon, select System Tools & Program Settings.
  • Under System Tools, click Submit Malware Samples.
  • Browse to the location of the file, click on it to highlight and click Open to send it to the malware research team.
.
Alternatively you can report it at the False Positives Forum but they will probably ask you to submit a sample.

I'll try and do that but should I ignore my results or remove threats?

If SAS is the only security scanner making the detection....then I would wait until you hear back from them.
