However, I still have this Windows SA folder sitting in Program files and are afraid to nuke it again for fear of a reoccurance.... I had to do a repair installation with the Windows disk. Wsaupdater.exe is usually located in the %SYSTEM% folder and its usual size is 126,976 bytes. Click here to Register a free account now!

cd \windows\system32 copy userinit.exe wsaupdater.exe Take the floppy out of the drive, and type exit to quit the recovery console and restart Windows normally. Register now! Everything I've read seem to say that wsaupdater should be in the data part for userinit in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon, but I'm getting "C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,userin". Also, when I was in the recovery console, I couldn't find any trace of wsaupdater.

Ordering the Windows XP CD would take to long...I have files on the infected computer that I need to use ASAP. Several functions may not work.

  1. I followed the suggestions of others, and used the Console Recovery from the install disk to copy userinit.exe to wsaupdater.exe, but I didn't get any results with that.

  7. Only thing I can think of is to copy that init file onto floppy and try it that way.
  8. Thanks for any help.

I'm asked to chose which windows installation i would like to log into, and i press 2 to get to C:\windows (1 is H:\MiniNT). Get to the windows setup welcome screen, where i press R to enter the recovery console. If it doesn't for you, then you have to find out why.
