** Possible Virus: Wininit.ini **
Posted on 2001-09-10
I have a problem with one client computer. Everytime that someone install a software or device, and then reboot the computer. It crashed and shows a lot of different character and the word: WININIT.EXE in textmode.
I cannot logging to Windows 98, but what I do is to boot with a floppy (startup) disk and then enter to c:\windows and erase the file wininit.ini. When I open that file, it shows the last changes or the programs installed.
McAffee do not detect it. I have all the new dat files.
I need suggestions to kill totally the virus or is a windows 98 problem now. Maybe because it was affected for all kind of viruses before, specially sircam.
thanks and regards,
