I noticed that for some strange reason yesterday I was getting logs from our corporate firewall that my pc was trying to login with out me trying. It kept getting a wrong user name and password failure, so I got a little curious and started looking at the processess that are running and found wininit.exe in the list, anyhow after looking up the process online it seems to be a virus.
Why doesnt OneCare see this as a virus?
2007年12月14日 14:31モデレータIt may or may not be a virus. Search your computer for wininit.exe. If the only instance found is in the system32 folder it is a legitimate Windows process. If more than one instance is found and it is not in the system32 folder it most likely is a virus.
Okay, did a search and found six instances.
3 MUI Files
1 EXE File
1 is in the system32 foler
1 is in Windows folder
and the rest are in a winsxs folder
Why isnt there a thread somewhere stating that this is a legit process?
Could this be whats trying to login to our firewall?
