Hello could someone give me any information on winlogon.exe file.
I recently got jammed with some malicious malware which hammered my system.
After turning off System restore and running a mountain of scanners (e.g. cwshredder, HijackThis, Ad-awareSE, SuperAntiSpyware, CCleaner, and a few others) It seemed my system was clean and back to normal.
(BTW - I did also scan on startup so as to clear memory)
However my Firewall started picking up an app called Windows NT logon application trying to connect.
Now I have no recollection of ever seeing this before so I became immediately suspicious and blocked it.
After doing some research I have found that it is indeed a vulnerable file for adware but also too critical a system file to remove.
The correct version of this file is located in C:\WINDOWS\system32
Which is where I found mine.
Apparently my system is free of spyware/adware and othe viruses (according to all the scans) - but I have no knowledge of ever seeing this icon before, and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on it for me.
Thanks in advance
