Event Viewer Warning Wininit Event ID: 11 , Can anyone help?


New Member
The Event Viewer details state:

"Custom dynamic link libraries are being loaded for every application. The system administrator should review the list of libraries to ensure they are related to trusted applications. Please visit AppInit DLLs and Secure Boot - Win32 apps for more information."\

and the XML states:

<Event xmlns=" "
- <System>
<Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Wininit" Guid="{206f6dea-d3c5-4d10-bc72-989f03c8b84b}" />
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2021-06-09T21:23:13.7097786Z" />
<Correlation />
<Execution ProcessID="828" ThreadID="876" />
<Security UserID="S-1-5-18" />
- <EventData>
<Data Name="StringCount">0</Data>
<Data Name="String" />

I've done some research online (I'm a newbie when it comes to this stuff) and I just cannot seem to find the culprit. All answers I have found, with others that have a similar issue, point to either antivirus/malware software causing this or a virus itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
