WININIT finished appears on toolbar

By lindyhl ·
Multiple copies of WININIT finished appears on my Windows 98 2nd ed. toolbar each time I boot up. I cannot prevent same by adjusting properties. Is this do to a buried virus that current MacAfee virus scan overlooks ?

WININIT finished appears on toolbar

There are several virus programs that will put a wininit.exe in the \windows\system directory. Be sure that you do not erase the one in the \windows directory, that is a needed windows file. If you do not have a current version and definition update for your virus checker, it could miss several of these viruses. You can go to for a searchable list of viruses, I preferr Norton AntiVirus to McAffee, and that may give you some insite as to which, ifany that you are dealing with. But it does sound like a virus to me.
