I just noticed this today. I deleted a PWS Trojan yesterday using McAfee, along w/ the registry keys it created. Now My Computer folder opens on startup. Any ideas? Thanks for any info everyone.

I tried, but it already says userinit.exe,

I forgot to add that the registry key this thing created was ibm0001.exe, in the registry and in the system restore folder. I manually deleted them both. Any ideas?

Well, I think you need some help in proving that your machine is malware free. You may have properly removed one virus, but rarely is a computer infected with only one thing.

For help with removing your infection I would like to refer you to the HiJack This (HJT) forum here at BleepingComputer.com:

First: Read the Preparation Guide found HERE. It is very important that you follow ALL of the instructions found within. (There are many important steps in this guide that may clean your computer.)

Second: Post your system information along with a brief description of the problems you are having, and your HJT log in the HJT forum found HERE.

NOTE: Please, after you post your HJT log DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post there will be 1 reply. The team member glancing over the replies might think someone is already helping you out and will not respond. So, just make your post and let it sit there until a team member responds. The volunteers who work that forum are very busy, so please be patient and wait. It can sometimes take a few days for a response. If after 5 days you still have gotten no response, then post a link to your HJT log HERE.

Third: If, after finishing your work with the folks at the HJT forum you have issues with Windows related to the removal of the infection, then come to the other forums and let us help you get your computer back to normal.

You are in good hands! Good luck!
