    Zonealarm just alerted me to an program that wanted to connect to the
    internet and requested my permission. Since the program wasn't familiar to
    me I refused and immediately did a search but came up with nothing.
    The file was "sysinit32m.exe". I checked it with Ewido and A-Squared
    and they weren't bothered by it. Then I checked it with Trojan Hunter
    which announced it as a Trojan, so I put it in quarantine just in case.
    Anyone out there familiar with this file and if it's really a Trojan?
    Thanks.

    Hi, "sysinit32.exe" with out the M is "Troj/Startpa-GM" info HERE

    So is the process "sysinit32m.exe" or "sysinit32.exe" ?

    Follow the recovery instructions in the above link to be sure.

    If you have any further trouble or doubts please post back.

    Thanks Sweetie :cool:

    Unfortunately my version has the M o_O

    Just in case however, I checked the registry and the entry for the
    Trojan you mentioned is non-existent.

    Okay, I just got feedbacK from Trojan Hunter and Ewido. The file is in fact
    a Trojan dialer and was now added to the Ewido database as well.
    Thanks to all those who took the time to help. :)
