I don't know where this came from (although I can imagine). My problem is not that it's running, but that I can't get rid of the Windows message that comes on every time I start the computer that says it can't find the "Userint32.exe" file name. I assume it's deleted, I can't find it in hidden files or anywhere else, but I also can't figure out what executable file is running this program and looking for the file.

Does that make sense?

Better yet, can you help?

Thanks in advance. This is an awesome forum.

Hi JaySchay. Welcome to Geeks to Go. I did a google search and found this:

userint32.exe is a process that is added by the W32/Oscabot-C worm. It uses IRC to get remote commands. This program is a registered security risk and should be removed immediately. If found on your system make sure that you have downloaded the latest update for your antivirus application.

You said the errors message is that the computer can't find it? I think it would be a good idea to check for malware. Follow the malware removal guide which has a link at the top of this forum where it says "Do you suspect a malware (Spyware, Virus, Trojan) infection? Please start here. " If you still have trouble after that, post a hijack this log in the malware forum at
