Winlogon fatal system error

Posted on 2008-01-26
Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
This BSOD or stop error seems to happen after a cold boot and the winlogon.exe system process seems to be the problem. I have turned off auto restarts in WIndows so that I get some detail on the BSOD. I have installed Dr Watson as the default system debugger and have included the log details from the error (see attached file)

Any help on interpreting the DrW log file to find a solution for the winlogon problem would be appreciated.

Are you running this to bypass Product Activation?

Can you boot the machine in Safe Mode even, or Last Known Good?

Yes can boot the machine in safe mode. This problem doesn't happen on every restart but mostly on cold boots. The antiwpa.dll's function is to bypass activation.

Can please post us a Hjt This logfile?


And I am assuming since you are bypassing Activation, then you also dont have WGA installed, which means you arent patched?

That might be the first step, instead of using the hack to skip activation.....

Why dont you activate? Not legal software....

It looks like the antiwpa.dll file is causing the BSOD screens. Thanks for your input guys.
