Lately, I've seen a number of similar cases present itself regarding some trojan starting up from the System.ini, editing the Shell= line to read shell=explorer.exe openme.exe We've been using StartLog by Rmbox as a very useful tool to troubleshoot startup problems and detecting trojans, but it only works with Win95, 98 and ME. What about XP? Anything much known about all the possible startup locations there? And from where would this openme.exe thing start up in XP? I've seen two cases of people running XP that had this trojan, and who were unable to determine from where it started up. I'm running Win 98SE myself, so I'm really at a loss. Anyone able to shed some light on this issue?
