    Hi just need something to be clarified.

    --------------------------------------------------

    C:\WINDOWS\WININIT.BAK listing:
    (Created 14/2/2005, 15:9:56)

    [rename]
    NUL=C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\VSINIT.DLL

    --------------------------------------------------

    The above is from my startuplist log file. Can anyone shed some light on what
    program runs this, what is it's function is, any security risk involved,where it resides, how I can stop this , as sometimes it points to different files in the \windows\temp directory ( ie dangerously named *.exe files which no longer exist ). Basically should I be concerned !
    Thanks
