update efexpress files

I uninstalled it and it took me to this shady search site called rumber with a bunch of hits of a book that i have searched on before and probably gives me viruses if i click the links.
Mein G Data hat es als Virus identifiziert und in Quarantäne geschoben!
Unerwünscht und versteckt installiert als Dienst und er werden Einträge in der Firewall gemacht so das unkontrolliert Daten gesendet und empfangen werden - Ergo Firmen die solche Machenschaften an den Tag legen können nicht seriös sein.

Best practices for resolving EFupdater issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with EFupdater. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.

To help you analyze the EFupdater.exe process on your computer, the following programs have proven to be helpful: Security Task Manager displays all running Windows tasks, including embedded hidden processes, such as keyboard and browser monitoring or Autostart entries.
