What is updatequalitink.exe?

Updatequalitink.exe is a part of BrowseFox adware according to VT report. Please note, there are more than twenty different variants of this adware and they are all labeled differently. So, in your case it could be something else not necessarily BrowseFox. It's just that anti-virus programs use the same detection name for different variants. Updatequalitink.exe runs in the background and checks for available updates. This program can download and install additional adware and spyware on your computer. Not to mention that it comes bundled with potentially unwanted programs in the first place. It is digitally signed by qualitink; issued by VeriSign. (VeriSign Class 3 Code Signing 2010 CA). Needless to say, it's not essential for Windows and may cause problems. It can display ads and spy on you (access data on all websites and collect information about your browsing activity). I recommend you to remove updatequalitink.exe from your computer and run a full system scan with recommended anti-malware software.
