Today I booted up my computer as normal, but found that it got no further than loading my desktop image before giving me an error message:
Data Execution Prevention
To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program.
Name: Userinit Logon Application
Publisher: Microsoft Corporation
Having scoured google there seems to be a number of possible causes/solutions, none of which seem to have helped my situation.
Several other Microsoft Applications such as Windows Installer and Notepad also give me similar error messages.
I've ran Spybot S&D (nothing), Norton AV (nothing), Malwarebytes, Eusing Free Registry Cleaner and CCleaner.
I don't know if this is relevant information or not but hopefully it could give someone an idea on what is the best remedy for my problem. Although Norton Av picked up nothing on the scan, the popups in the corner occasionally show it has blocked Downloader from C:\Windows\Temp\Vrta8.tmp
Oh yeah, I got the error message when trying to use a restore point aswell.
I've got a malwarebytes log and HJT log if required, but I read the message about not posting them here...
Any help is appreciated....
