Ive noticed that last couple of times I have been infected with a virs or a trojan, when I go try to execute an application, I get the following error

" application failed to initialize"

and it will not run.

Does anyone know what causes this? Is there a way to trap this error and see what caused it? is there any logs that would give insight into why this is occuring? If a virus puts malicious code in the operating system to cause this, where would it be or what might it look like?

I am doing more and more investigation into how viruses work and also how to detect them better. any help on this or maybe any websites that would help me would be appreciated. thanks. :thumbsup:

Moved from Malware removal logs as no logs are included, moved to the more appropriate forum ~Pandy
