winlogon.exe has encountered a problem

By sadeep.minhas ·

I have been facing this problem for last couple of days, whenever the computer boots I get the error Msg "winlogon.exe has encountered a problem" and the computer reboots on its own. Also, the same thing happens whenever I try to run Internet explorer, msconfig, regedit or try to run hijackthis/any other anti-virus or try to save any ".EXE" file or install any software.

can you please suggest something !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Logon in safe mode, and open a Command prompt. Then expand winlogon.ex_ from the XP CD. Or

do a search for winlogon.ex_ and expand it from there.

Use the following command line as an example.

expand \i386\winlogon.ex_ c:\Windows\System32\Winlogon.exe
