When I go to FF home page an update screen opens up for Express Files Updater, requesting me to update. Is this part of FF / Mozilla and should I update? Thank you for help.

No this isn't part of Firefox and it looks suspicious to me.

Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

I've tried completing a System Restore, but it won't complete because of a program that's running, even when I've turned everything off, so I'm assuming this EFU file is causing the problem.

I've just tracked the file down in my Program Files (x86) folder, deleted it, and emptied the Recycle Bin... but if my IT guru is right, it'll still be hidden in the file it came in, and will come back again.
