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.

A blankscreen always a blank screen....when i turn my notebook on, it wont show anything...just a blank screen


Hi there,

Blank screen with a Blinking Cursor or just the Blank screen?
Which is your Operating system?
What Program Did You Install That You Weren't Supposed To?

That information might help us.
One note: I recently ran into something similar to your issue regarding the "Windows Logon".. There are a number of malware programs which will rename the critical "winlogon.exe" file to something else like "winlogon2.exe".. The malware then replaces the renamed file with a trojan also named "winlogon.exe". So the "bad" winlogon.exe is working as a trojan while still allowing the "good/real" winlogon.exe to sit beside it.. (The "good/real" file has an icon which looks like a blue window with a yellow half-moon inside so it's easy to identify.)

In my case, I used the XP Recovery Console to scan through the files in C:\Windows\System32 and find both the bad and the good versions of the file.. I deleted the bad file from the Recovery Console and renamed the good file back to its original/correct "winlogon.exe".. Rebooting the computer allowed it to load Windows so I could run antispyware scans and finish cleaning up the computer.

It might be worth checking..

Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.
Cheers!!!!

Have problem with my Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, when control panel is open get C:\Windows\Systems32\.Exe'. when I try to open java get same message how do I reslove problem? This is a Dell...


To fix your error, you need to have your windows XP cd. This issue occurs because of a missing or corrupted Rundll32.exe file. This issue may also be caused by a virus.

To resolve this issue, follow these steps:
  1. Put the Windows XP CD ROM disk in the CD ROM drive.
  2. Click Start, and then click Run.
  3. Type expand X:\i386\rundll32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe in the Open box, where X is the letter of your CD ROM Drive.
  4. Restart the computer.
This may not 100% fix your issue but at least its a try.
