Every now & again,i run CCleaner to 'clean up' my PC & i delete old Prefetch items at the same time. I've noticed that one item that used to be there,
''userinit.exe'' is no longer there,it's no longer part of my Task Manager processes either.
This is what MS say about userinit.exe :- " Specifies the programs that Winlogon runs when a user logs on. By default, Winlogon runs Userinit.exe, which runs logon scripts, reestablishes network connections, and then starts Explorer.exe, the Windows user interface."
I'm not that PC savvy when it comes to thing like this,but when 'items' go missing,i tend to try to find out what's happened to change things. I had a look at my registry,running a search for 'userinit.exe.' & i found a registry entry 'block userinit' in a folder labelled 'New Windows' - see attachment.
Does this seem odd or ...??????. Any info.on this would be very much appreciated. My PC seems to be running perfectly so ?.
All the other 'userinit' registry entries are still in place. Weird !.
