What is wuweb.dll?

Part of Windows Update Web Control by Microsoft

What is it?

The Windows Update Web site includes an ActiveX Web control program that downloads and installs updates. The Windows Update team receives feedback from their customers on how to improve their Web site, and responds by periodically updating the Web control. The newest version of the Web control program is downloaded automatically when the user visits the Windows Update site or when any of the other Windows features calls on the Windows Update control.
Description of wuweb.dll from Microsoft
When you turn on automatic updating, most updates will download and install without you having to lift a finger. But sometimes Windows Update will need your input during an installation. In this case, you'll see an alert in the notification area at the far right of the taskbar—be sure to click it. If you don't respond to a Windows Update alert, your PC might end up missing an important download. Just like downloading an ActiveX control, the user may receive a security dialog box that a Web control is attempting to be installed. Users may not receive the dialog box if they have selected to always trust Microsoft as a content provider (using their security settings in Microsoft Internet Explorer). If users do not click Yes on the security dialog box, the control will not be updated and they will not be able to access the Windows Update site.
(wuweb.dll is a system file that is installed with Windows)
