On Windows 7,
SSBkgdUpdate.exe pops up every time a non-admin user logs in, asking for the admin password. This is the auto-updater for ScanSoft PaperPort 11.
I tried to zap it by deleting the executable. But it magically reappeared after reboot!
1) Download Start-up Manager
2) After installing Start-up manager, in the left panel "Start sections" Click on "All users."
3) Now in the right panel, look for SSBkgdUpdate.exe, once you find it un-check it.
This will remove SSBkgdUpdate.exe in other accounts , make sure you do this from the administrator account.
I've got the above "Shield with Yellow & Blue 'virus' / dodgy programme" that comes up on start up every time I switch on. I have tried to get rid of it and failed — I've had it for two months.
I looked up
SSBkgdupdate.exe on the 'net. It seems that it is a common problem, with several websites saying it is bad (they would say that, wouldn't they!) and linking to "how to get rid of SSBkgdupdate.exe," but I couldn’t get them to work or they themselves looked suspect.
THE SOLUTION FOR ME:
I've managed to get rid of
SSBkgdupdate.exe at last. After going to my C drive, I managed to find "common files," went into that and amazingly I found "SSBkgdupdate" sitting there all innocently.
Its properties showed
Type File folder Origin Scansoft shared Size 152 mb Created 27 Sept 12 17.51
So I just pressed delete and it has gone and no longer appears on my startup screen!
At my installation this popup had been caused by an installation of OmniPage. I could disable the popup by the already mentioned method with msconfig: Start -> msconfig.exe -> Startup -> there I unchecked "SSEreg" and "Nuance Omnipage...". Omnipage will work nevertheless.
Just click Start. At the bottom type
msconfig then hit Enter.
Click the tab Startup. Scroll down and uncheck
Warning: Unchecking things will effect the operation of your computer. Most third party can be unchecked. It will then ask you to restart.
