    Getting fwupdate.exe window while starting up PC running on Windows Vista

    Whenever I boot up my PC upgraded to Windows Vista, I can view fwupdate.exe window pop up on the screen. I am not able to find a way to erase this file. Can anyone suggest me the actual procedure for removing this window from start up screen?

    The fwupdate.exe file is a utility for auto-updating the firmware of LG devices. You can erase this file after going into System Configuration Utility. Click the ‘Start’ button for that and find out ‘Run’ option from the start menu. Hit that option and wait until ‘Run’ dialog box pop up on the screen. Locate ‘Open’ field available in that window and type msconfig into it. Then, press the ‘Enter’ key or ‘OK’ button for bringing up the ‘System Configuration Utility’ window. By the time you can view that window, click the ‘Startup’ tab visible at the top part. Navigate through the list pop up on the window afterwards and find out ‘Fwupdate.exe’ file. Clear off the checkbox appears at the right side of this file by clicking on it. After that, press the ‘OK’ button and restart the system.

    Hi.
    It is an utility to auto-update the firmware of LG devices. If you don't want it every time you log on,
    >click
    Start
    >
    type msconfig
    >
    hit ENTER
    > go to the
    Startup tab and see if Fwupdate.exe is listed there.
    If so, uncheck it, click
    OK, and restart the computer.

    Thank you.

    the problem is created because of utility update of the firmware of LG devices
    this is the problem might be created because of improper install
    to get rid of these
    go to control panel
    remove the LG Toolkit
    the error will disappear
