Hey guys, whenever i try to log in to my admin account in Win7, It says Welcome and then logs out. I booted Hiren's Boot CD and used the Registry Editor to change the Shell to Explorer.exe and Userinit to X:\Windows\System32\userinit.exe,
However, I don't know what I did, but i could log into my account a few times, but it was logging me into a temp Admin account. (Explorer didn't open on its own, I had to force Explorer to open as administrator). I ran Combofix and a Malwarebytes Full scan.
But now it's logging in and out again. I copied a userinit file from another working computer, but it still didn't work.
It may be malware that has hijacked the registry because everytime i change the value of Userinit, it still causes logs in and then out.
