Recently I received a virus via email, which my Norton Anti-Virus dealt with. Now, whenever I turn the computer on, a window is opened up, showing on the task bar. When opened, there is a message which reads 'WININIT.EXE cannot be run from within Windows' How do I get rid of this.

Hi, I had something similar to this recently, involving wininit.exe, and so it may be the same thing. What I had was a virus, and so here's the web address for the Fix from Norton. If I remember right, Norton Antivirus doesn't fix it (dunno why) but here's instructions to fix it:

I hope this helps
