  1. Hi All

    I have some weird entries in my Win.ini. The PC is very slow to boot up and shut down. Has a P4 2.8Ghz CPU and 512Meg DDR 400MHz Ram. Any ideas as to what these entries may be would be greatly appreciated.


    The last two lines were cut off so i ended them with...

    Thanks heaps

    It is obviously something encrypted/obfuscated/randomised

    You probably have some malware on your computer. Please see the security forum.

    Do need to repost this thread in the security forum? I have run Aaware, Spybot & Hijack This and removed all threats.

    There were threats?

    In that case just remove these suspicious entries too. Probably got left over from the other cleaning tools - there's no way to reliably detect such gibberish.
