    Update Manger has stopped working

    Why do I keep getting this error every 2 minute or so? It's bloody annoying. It rolls on to the screen for a second or so then exits automatically. How do I disable Update Manager? I'm using windows 8.

    Here is a screenshot:

    Also notice the typo ''manger''? Me thinks it's a malware but I have already ran multiple malwarebytes scan and all of the time it came clean. Ran the System file checker tool sfc scannow and its clean. What is going on? Can someone point out where the problem might be? More specifically can I disable this update "manger"?

    Meanwhile I have simply made a new admin account in my machine and this annoying error doesn't pop up over there.
    I went to the event viewer to look for any details about this error reporting and I copied all of these details in this document:

    This is all of the information I can provide for now. If there is any other info I can provide to track down this error I will be here

    Scan the file on VirusTotal, maybe that clears something up.

    This is where Update Manger executable file is located. When I double click the file it opens exactly that annoying "Update Manger has stopped working" error.

    Should I delete the file?

    @axe0 I have scanned the update manger file on virustotal and the detection ratio is 0/57

    Here are some additional errors shown in my event viewer may be this is what's causing the update manager to pop continiously?

    But even if something is causing the update manager reporter to pop up why would there would be a typo of "manger"? Why would Windows name it's error reporter ''manger'' instead of ''manager''?

    Is this even a windows error reporter or some application error reporter?
