Winlogon is a part of the Windows Login subsystem, and is necessary for user authorization and Windows activation checks. http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/proces...

Note: The winlogon.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, winlogon.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! Check this with Security Task Manager." Microsoft designed Windows so many small applications perform their tasks without a user knowing about it. Normally, this will run smoothly and without flaw, but every once in a while, an issue can come up. Winlogon.exe is an application that runs on start-up, and its primary function is to monitor the use of other applications. Winlogon.exe typically only runs for about a minute or two when Windows first boots up, so if for some reason it is still running five or 10 minutes later, it could be infected. Spyware and other malware would infect this application because it can manipulate other programs in Windows, causing problems. If this is the case, the file might need to be removed.

if you want to remove this from Open "My Computer" and select the "C:" drive. Double click the "Windows" folder, then select "System 32." Navigate through the System 32 folder until you find "Winlogon.exe." Click the "Winlogon.exe" file and hit "Delete." Select "Yes" when asked if you're sure you want to remove the program.

I lost my installation disc for windows xp pro and I needs product key code?


Its illegal for anyone to provide serial keys for programs that have retail value set on them
If you are trying to recover a key of an already installed program on your computer there are freeware keyfinders on the internet
http://download.cnet.com/%7Bvalue=http://www.download.com/magical-jelly-bean-keyfinder/3000-18487_4-10079600.html The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry.
It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping.



SP3 is the third and final service pack released for Microsoft Windows XP, and it eliminates many of the security holes that previously affected XP.
While Microsoft recommends that users download SP3 using Windows Update, some users are unable to do so.
However, it's easy to create a Windows XP SP3 installation CD; it requires only that you download the pack from the website and burn it to a CD-R/DVD-R using an ISO burner program.
Download the SP3 installation ISO by visiting the first link listed in the "Resources" section of this article. Save it to your Desktop.
Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop.
Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next."
Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn.
Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive.
Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn."
Click "File," then "Browse for a source file."
Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file.
Click "Open."
Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn.
The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD.
This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned.
Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning.
You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

Doesn't seem like a need to reformat just yet.And, you may not have a virus.

Have you updatd to XP SP3? You can find out by clicking the Windows key +Pause simotaneously in the subsequent popup it should be noted under "System:"

There is a way to repair your installation without reformatting.

Let me know about my above quesions and I'll be happy to get you to a Anti Virus program that scans during Boot Up and also get you started to Repair the OS.

Taskmanager


If you have access to a clean computer with a burner, then download Hirens Boot Disc.
The download is only around 80-90 meg and can be burnt onto a cd or dvd.
Download HERE.
Burn that program to cd and put it into the infected PC. Start the computer up and boot from the CD instead of the hard drive.

There are anti virus utilities on there that run in Dos mode without ever loading anything from your hard drive.
