Extended Update is a potentially unwanted program that may be a serious annoyance as it could attempt to run various tasks without permission. Allowing Extended Update to run on your system may lead to several unwanted actions to take place, such as the display of random pop-up messages or ads. The Extended Update program may end up causing an interruption of surfing the internet and then cause unwanted redirects to other questionable sites. Removal of Extended Update may require detection of all Extended Update files and then eliminating them by use of an antimalware application.
