Winlogon false positive [resolved]


I’m wondering why nobody mentioned winlogon.exe reported as false positive. CIS beta 1 crashed my Windows because of this (beta 2 at least asks before it deletes anything). I|m running Windows XP SP2 with Czech localization. I’m absolutely sure the file is clean because it is a clean and new Windows instalation (I had to do a clean Windows install after the crash). This is a long standing problem, it has been reported several moth ago already, but it’s still not fiexed :-(. I can upload the winlogon.exe, if Comodo needs to. Should I do it? Where should I send it to?

Also in the main screen of CIS it says 5 threat(s) detected so far. If I click at the number “5” a new window pops up and the list is empty. Do you have any idea what does it mean?

Your help is very much appreciated.


Hello Baskar,

the file is detected as a trojan in beta 2 too, I should have the latest version now. I already sent the file and some screenshots to you by e-mail. It is reported as Trojan.Win32.Patched.m@352071.

I now upgraded to XP SP3, so I’ll let you know if Comodo reports the new version of winlogon.exe (SP3 updates this file AFAIK) as a trojan too.

The FP has been fixed already. If you are still facing any problems, please let us know.

Much appreciated. :slight_smile:

Thanks and Regards,

Thanks a lot, for fixing this. :-TU

Just to mention with SP3 there are no more problems with winlogon.exe.

I’ll let you know if I ever come across another FP.

Thanks Vlada. We really appreaciate your taking time to report problems :).
