startup error message windows cannot find winsit.exe - suspected malware

Post by ianmrobbo on Wed Feb 17, 2010 11:23 am

Thanks for your attention I get the following message every time the machine starts up

Windows cannot find system32\WinSit.exe

this in itself is not an issue but it would be good to clean it off and there are no signs of infection when running avg

HJT output below if it helps

Many many thanks

Ian
