Hi, Bleeping Gurus. I compared my task manager programs with the startup list on this site, and I have some concerns about some of them being malware.

I'm concerned about winlogon.exe first of all. I have Windows 7 Ultimate, and this app is not in C:\Windows as it says the malware file is here, rather it's in System32. But it IS called Windows Logon Application in the description on my computer, as it is when it's associated with this Dsklite malware. When I right-click that process in task manager, it shows the properties and a little icon of a window with a crescent moon and stars outside.

Before I go into detail about spoolersv (which seems to me to be the legit printer app, but if I was sure I wouldn't be concerned) and the other process or two, I'll let you read the attached DDR log, as I was instructed to post. It's there in its entirety except for some Javascript history of visited sites and some email addresses which I deleted for privacy's sake. (Don't know why Ccleaner didn't delete that, but that's a different forum.) You can see from the log that I have several layers of malware protection, which I update and utilize regularly.

Thank you VERY much in advance.
