Winlogon process goes to 99% and consumes the machine.
Posted on 2006-11-27
After logging on the system appears to hang.
I see that Winlogon CPU utilization has gone to 99%.
I talked to Microsoft and they said that it might be a problem with the windows audio driver.
I booted into safe mode and tried to disable the service from starting. I got an access denied error that said that I needed to log on as an administrator. I was the local administrator. AAArgh!
I then tried to set up a testadmin accoutn. I recieved an error message that the user FOCUS/testadmin could not be added to the Adminstrators group because FOCUS/testadmin does not exist. DUH! I was trying to create that account. AAArgh!
I am running a chkdsk now.
I did a system restore to a point prior to Thanksgiving. I had installed franklin planner for Outlook over the holidays.
Any suggestions would be grealy appreciated.
