I think i got a virus, but am not sure. First of all, my computer's cpu usage was at 100% while not running anything so i figured something was wrong. I looked all around and googling every .exe thing i found running and in the msconfig startup menu.

This is when i found winlogin on the startup menu listed as common startup. I googled this and i guess its a virus file or something, i'm not too good with computers so i actually don't know. So i check to see if it is in my active processes but it wasnt, so i disabled it from the startup menu and then restarted my computer.

When i got back to the startup menu i noticed there were two 'winlogin's now, one was disabled and one was enabled. This makes me wonder if its a bad file or not. Also, today my computer's cpu usage is only at 15%, so idk what's going on.

Any help is appreciated.

I see you have posted a log in the HJT forum, which is what I would have suggested you do.

Now that you have done that, do not make any further changes to your system: using cleaning tools, changing registry entries, installing or uninstalling program etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your HJT log as the team may conclude that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your HJT topic.
