WARNING: This process is part of Windows. Shutting it down will almost certainly cause more problems than it solves. Note that some installations have modified Winlogon to avoid Windows Genuine Advantage and Program Activation licensing mechanisms. To some spyware/anti-virus programs these modifications may appear to be viruses because Winlogon has been technically hacked. DO NOT tamper with Winlogon unless you are a professional and know exactly what you are doing, or you are in for a heap of trouble.
