I know that the actual winlogon never requires internet access but a file of the same name in C:\Windows wants it. When I tried kill box my computer restarted for no reason

Here's a HJT report

Run VundoFix and click Scan for Vundo
Click Remove Vundo, and choose Yes when prompted to remove files
Your Desktop will disappear for a moment
Click OK when prompted to shutdown your computer
Turn your computer back on. Post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt as well as a new HijackThis log

As further explanation Brendan's fix is the latest way to fix and is easier - CHeese's works also but is more work

Fix these with HJT – mark them, close IE, click fix checked

O23 - Service: Win Logon ( Microsoft Windows Logon Process) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\winlogon.exe

O23 - Service: ECA (cpanel) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\javapanel.exe (file missing)

O23 - Service: System Manager Service (SMSC) - Unknown owner - C:\WINDOWS\smsc.exe (file missing)
================
Click Start > Run > and type in:

services.msc

Click OK.

In the services window find this exact name

Win Logon

Rightclick and choose "Properties". On the "General" tab under "Service Status" click the "Stop" button to stop the service. Beside "Startup Type" in the dropdown menu select "Disabled". Click Apply then OK. File-Exit the Services utility.

Repeat for – ECA and System Manager Service
=============



DownLoad http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.zip

Restart your computer into safe mode now. (Tapping F8 at the first black screen) Perform the following steps in safe mode:

Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it. Now put a tick by Standard File Kill. In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file. It will ask for confimation to delete the file. Click Yes. Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

C:\WINDOWS\winlogon.exe

Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not exist. If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you don't miss any.

START – RUN – type in %temp% OK - Edit – Select all – File – Delete

Delete everything in the C:\Windows\Temp folder or C:\WINNT\temp

Empty the recycle bin
Boot and post a new log from normal NOT safe mode

Please give feedback on what worked/didn’t work and the current status of your system
