    can anyone help

    Infection from msinit.a, puts a application msi212.exe in windows and a registry entry, although registry is easy to change windows will not allow deletion of msi212.exe file. any advice would be appreciated.

    Can you boot to a safe mode command prompt and then delete the file.
