When I boot my system I get a blue screen like a login box, except it has foriegn symbles of some kind at the first line. I can't get a snap shot and it only has an "x" to close, which does nothing,, an "OK" box which lets it proceed to log in. It only has a few characters, and I cant duplicate them. When I did all my scans plus some new ones just in case of a new threat, I rebooted and at the top of the box at end it had "winlogon". Before that it in the same line had about ten different symbles, kinda looked chineese or somthing. here is latest hijack log. Any help or clue about what I am describing?? I also attached one of the symbols to a word doc, it is as if you could write text in it, with the little curser flashing,,, god this is hard to explain,,, maybe I can use camera to take picture and upload if that will help.

I noticed while trying to get a good shot of the screen, that the symbols inlayed in the blue erea would change dramaticly as in the number of symbols that where there. It started with 3 or 4, then after it sat for a minute, it chang to about nine, with ".ILO", and not sure about the ILO part, but I couldn't get a snap off before it changed. Hope this will help... well I did get a shot of it changing But they are not real clear. Best I could get. And is IPSEC service supposed to be running, it is set to Automatic but is the only one set to auto that is not runnig at start up?? Thanks very much for the help.

Already all virus scans from many known venders and not winlogon, already checked...


Winlogon may have been replaced by a false one (virus). You can check it matches the one on the windows cd (you will need your cd) by going to run and typing

sfc /scannow

. This process is silent. Reboot it finishes and see if the problem still occurs.


Ok guys,, it was that I was first using tuneupxp 2006, and in the system control section there was a boot up screen option that you could have say something before logging on. somehow this got triggerd and was actually just being annoying instead of a threat. it was a bug but not dangeruose. the other errors I was getting,, I feel dumb about this,,, anyways, was I was tring to log on to my network in a domain, and from what I gatherd, xp doesnt support that type,,, not sure anyways,,, all seems to be fine,, If someone could look at that hijack.log at top to make a final descision I would thank you!!!! peace out,,, and sorry again for the wild goose chase!!


What does your last picture say? Cannot locate file? When I click on it to make it bigger the resolution will not clear and cannot make out what it says.
Will it load your user profiles to log into Windows XP?

Try this at your own risk:
Tap F8 upon startup. Choose Safe mode.
Go to Start Run and type MSConfig
click on Services and take the check mark out of: C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe
Then go to Start and Run and type
sfc /scannow
See if finds any errors in your system file and repair if need be.

Hope that helps


Hey disregard my suggestion on disabling. Just go to that link to read more about WinLogon.
