two wininit.exe always running RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why do I always have two wininit.exe, two lsass.exe, two snmp.exe running? Shouldn´t it be one of each file? These maybe signs of a rootkit infection? Thanks.

  • Hi Eleonora.

    Check the path of each instance of those processes and perform a full antimalware scan of your system.

    Bye.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.

    Have you made any changes to your computer, please?

    If not, please follow the instructions below.

    First, try running antivirus software to scan the entire computer. Second, find the actual path corresponding to these processes and check. Normal, each system file will only correspond to one.

    Best regards,
