Hi,

Stupid me got a virus from a keygen, I've looked at most of the posts for the fix, but I can't get into the system in safe mode, or last best sys config. When I log on I get the userinit.exe application error. Does anyone know another way to get into my PC to run and delete the infected files with the antivirus software :thumbsup: . I have also tried Ctrl Alt Delete, but run into the same problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Louie

:thumbsup: It appears you are seeking to circumvent Copyright Law by the use of these materials?
Are you aware that your computer's safety is at risk from the use of these 'materials'?

Can you tell us your Windows version and antivirus and other protection that is legit ?When was it all last updated and full scans run?

Thanks, that was really helpful? I was not aware that a virus would be in a keygen. Running XP home and Trend micro internet security which is up to date.

Lets approach this from a different angle?
What program have you got on your computer and from where obtained that requires you to find a key for it ?

OR; have you lost a password and are trying to relocate it?

I'm not sure how these questions will assists me. I had even paid for the privilage of getting this virus. I have the virus on a disc, but am too scared to put in my laptop and have that destroyed as well.

Assuming the infection is on your computer would you please run a scan to see what it shows up?

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...st&p=959453

Is there a specific program on the CD that you need for your computer and, if it has an infection on it


from where was the CD obtained?

Hi

I can't run a scan on my PC as I can't get into it due to the virus, as I mentioned in my first post I can't log in as the message userinit.exe pops up even in safe mode and I can't get through with ctrl alt delete. Have tried safe mode with cmd prompt but don't see any dos.

As a separated issue the virus has been captured and burnt to CD, I ran a scan on that with my laptop and it has picked up 3 viruses.

you have a userinit.exe error?
http://www.processlibrary.com/directory/files/userinit

userinit.exe is a key process in the Windows operating system. On boot-up it manages the different start up sequences needed, such as establishing network connection and starting up the Windows shell. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.


As I understand it, I think you may need to do a Repair Installation of your XP http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/h...ips/doug92.mspx

which will require your having your XP CD and licence key to hand

Changed the boot sequence in the bios to run from my CD rom, put in XP. It booted and said hit any key to start CD.... Then XP fires up so can't go through that way either to do a repair. Any other ideas? :thumbsup:
