Hi All,

I have a computer with Windows XP pro with SP3. I see a process called _winlogon.exe in processes tab of task manager. I have tried running Rkill, then combofix, then malwarebytes, then superantispyware. I updated all of them before running. I also ran winpatrol and tried to terminate the process. It did not terminate with either rkill or winpatrol If I rename the _winlogon in the location where it is, (windows\system32) the computer will continuously reboot. If I terminate the process in task manager, the computer blue screens.

I need some help to make it go away!
