    wuauclt.exe - This is used by the automatic update tool in Windows ME to check the Windows Update site every so often to see if any updates need to be installed.
    In other cases, wuauclt.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! So i suggest u scan yur system properly with all the anti-virus,spyware, etc. u have.
