Today I started my computer only to find a program called Egis Update running at startup. I have never seen this before, so I immediately shut down. I Googled it on my iPod but found nothing. I'm afraid it is a virus--can anyone tell me otherwise?
I may be freaking out over nothing but this seems really strange.
it's for mywinlocker, some useless shit that's preinstalled on most windows 7 pcs

I've never heard of that either, and you're right, a google search wasn't too helpful.
What AV programs are you running?
I like malwarebytes alot, I've got a few viruses before and that was the only program I could find that would remove them, beyond me going through my registry myself and all that pain in the ass.
Also, try a system restore--several days ago. I'd do a week just to be safe.
Like other users have said--it may be part of the computer already. Just be cautioned that a lot of viruses use names/extensions that look like legit ones to protect themselves.
