"the second thing is i cant close system processes in the task manager. it says unable to terminate process"

Your system is using these processes to work, if you terminated them your PC would crash.

Some programs automatically use IE to access the web. You can't really do much about this unless you can find an option to change.

winlogon.exe is a process belonging to the Windows login manager. It handles the login and logout procedures on your system. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.


The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Recently I've been seeing a lot of Winlogon errors at work and suspect that there's a virus around that trys to mimic or modify it. I'd suggest further scans with programs like AVG Free and their AVG Anti-Spyware.

FYI - at work we scan with a minimum of 3 different A/V scanners and 6 different A/Spyware tools when cleaning a system.

I just googled WNIlogon.exe and it looks like it is part of a Trojan or WOrm.
Have a look.
