I run a scan using a-squared Free 18.104.22.168 on Windows Vista and found Trace.File.PC Tattletale with the trace: C:\Windows\system32\winload.exe.
The only problem is that winload.exe is the boot loader in Windows Vista and should not be removed just like that.
Windows Vista includes new boot loader components that are designed to load Windows quicker and more securely. The traditional Windows NT boot loader, ntldr, is replaced by three components:
- Windows Boot Manager (Bootmgr.exe)
- Windows operating system loader (Winload.exe)
- Windows resume loader (Winresume.exe)
