USERINI.EXE

Recommended Posts

Looking at my computer's Task Manager I saw USERINI.EXE for a short while and I found this page on the web: https://www.superantispyware.com/malwarefiles/USERINI.EXE.html

Also many other pages noted the need for immediate removal of USERINI.EXE. So I launched SuperAntiSpyware and did a thorough full scan after updating the software. It found adware cookies and that is all. It did not detect USERINI.EXE

Perhaps SAS engineers can comment on this?

Thank you.

Welcome to the SuperAntiSpyware forum Neonrider.

Please run a search for the file, upload it to the following site and post the results:

http://www.virustotal.com/

Sorry, what exactly should I do? I already ran a search for "userini" and "userini.exe" on my computer. I also ran full scan with SAS to no avail. Then I ran a full scan with Avast and it found a virus, but not named as "userini.exe". It is called "CheckModel2.exe" (last changed 2-10-2003) and is now residing in the "Virus Chest" of Avast.

P.S.: How can I upload a file (to virustotal.com) when I don't know where and what it is? As I described, I saw "USERINI.EXE" running in my TASK MANAGER for a short while yet I was unable to "catch it" or "close it" nor "find it" in my PC. So how can I upload something that I don't have? Thank you. :-)

You're welcome.

It doesn't seem that you have the userini.exe infection. However, when you ran the search did you check off "Search Hidden Files And Folders". Also, are you sure you didn't see the legitimate process USERINIT.EXE ?
