    winlogon keeps duplicating itself

    hey guys

    I'm using xp and i can't copy minlogon over winlogon because winlogon replicates itself every time i try. I changed the first winlogon.exe to winlogon.exe.bak. then i tried to bring in minlogon and change its named to winlogon and it would give me an error that a file with that name already exists. so then i tried changing the name of the file (minlogon) before i brought it in the system32 folder to copy over winlogon and it'd let me do it. a few seconds later minlogon would become the old winlogon. any suggestions on how to overcome this would be great.

    I had the exact same problem. I eventually got past it by disabling windows file protection. I did so by following a combination of steps from the following links.

    After I had WFP disabled, I was able to rename winogon.exe and copy over a renamed minlogon. Hope this helps.

    You can also go and delete winlogon.exe from the dllcache folder

    so simple

    Yeah !

    Winlogon.exe kept resurrecting because it was in dllcache.

    I've just spent hours trying to do this because Debug wouldn't work in my nLite version of XP Pro. I didn't have autoexec.nt, config.nt and about 10 other files and I couldn't disable WFP.

    An old thread resurrected but it worked for me.
