I've been infected with winiogon.exe and it's removed the icons that are supposed to be at the bottom right alongside my clock. It's also effected MSN. I don't know how to remove it or how to get my icons back. please help.

Hello ice232

Are you sure about the spelling? winiogon.exe or winlogon.exe

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using and how did you go about removing it?

Lets double-check for other possible trojans on your system. If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0 in "SAFE MODE".
Print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.
