wininit.exe

Wininit.exe can also be a very important part of the Windows XP/Vista/7 operating system. It should be located in c:\$windir$\system32\ to be the benign system application. The file was created to allow uninstallers to run and process commands stored in the file WinInit.ini. This allows programs to take action while the computer is still booting up. In Windows 7 and Vista, it primarily acts as a launcher for the majority of the background applications that are always running.
