Hi All
I ran a Hijack log and was checking out some of the items listed on the log - I have Userinit.exe on there and was wondering if it would be safe to remove it?


Thanks,
Tammy

If your HJT log...lists userinit.exe as an infected file...you really ought to pose your question and your log...at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/, strictly following the procedures outlined/detailed there.
