Winlogin.exe is hanging

By snyder
Nov 18, 2005
  1. Hello all. I am new here. I have a Ibm thinkpad with Xp pro and SP1. One day I turned on the computer and notice a really bad lag. I finally openned Task Manager and noticed Winlogin.exe is using 99% of my resources. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Thanks for the tip. I tried House Call. It took a really long time to load.

    Does anyone know what virus or app is killing my winlogin.exe. Under Task Manager its using 99% of my resources. Is there a way to end the task?

    Thanks,

    Chris
