    I think ,you tried to replace the original winlogon.exe file in windows xp for making pirated windows genuine ?
    otherwiset the process "winlogon.exe" runs in the background. Winlogon is a part of the Windows Login subsystem, and is necessary for user authorization and Windows activation checks.

    To remove Trojan Winlogon.exe ,just download this small utility and run it..

    Effective tool for such type of small trojans/snippers

    The key to cleaning, is booting into Safe Mode With Networking, then running two (2) different cleaners. Here is how you can do it:


    (1) First, restart your computer in Safe Mode With Networking (reboot).
    Re-boot and hold down your [F8] key while re-booting
    (2) Boot into "Safe Mode with Networking"
    (3) Download Malwarebytes from www.malwarebytes.org
    (4) Install Malwarebytes
    (5) **Still in Safe Mode** Run Malwarebytes until it's finished
    (6) On the "Quarantine" tab, delete everything!
    (7) Restart your computer into SafeMode With Networking.

    THEN:

    Download and install the free SuperAntiSpyware.
    www.superantispyware.com/download.html

    Then, run SuperAntiSpyware. It's free, so you don't have to pay.

    Then, tell it to detect everything and clean everything. Then, restart computer.

    This should fix it.

    EDIT: IF YOU CAN ONLY BOOT IN SAFE MODE, then could mean that your REGISTRY is messed up --- but I'm not sure of that. So, what I would do is download the latest MICROSOFT SECURITY ESSENTIALS.

    Might be better than KIS2012 in removing malwares ,but remember MALWAREBYTES is not much effective in removing any security risk related to trojans .Even ,some time ,these type of softwares do just a showoff means showing fake infos about risks !

    I have research report of various security softwares in which our team researched on it ..
