Each time I start up the computer, I get the following error message when the desktop attempts to load: Winlogon.exe encountered a problem and needed to close. After a few seconds, it disappears on its own. Sometimes, I can click Cancel to clear it as well. When I shutdown XP, I get the following error message which also makes reference to winlogin.exe. The error message reads as follows: Winlogon.exe Application Error. The instruction at (makes reference to a memory address with numbers and letters) could not be read by the memory. Click Cancel or OK to terminate the program or select Debug program.
Any help on resolving this winlogon.exe error message within XP Pro SP2 will be appreciated.
