BitDefender scanned result showed that I have an infected Trojan Generic at Winlogon.exe  However, other anti virus like Avira didn't report anything.  Can someone guide me what is the problem?  Attached is my HJT report.

    Accepted Solution

    Ignore BitDefender for time being as looks like a false positive.

    A quick google shows other users with same problem:

    If this is a false positive BitDefender will fix the problem and release new updates.

    Your hijackthis log looks clean to me.

    However I recommend that you do an online scan using Kaspersky's online scanner to get more accurate results...
    Bit defender is a very sensitive scanner against possible infection and if the scanner detects a sample of code which is similar to a virus one it will surely report it as a virus or trojan....

    Try Trendmicro Scan as well to make sure your on the safe side...

    Expert Comment

    Running two av apps. simultaneously is never a good idea as it can cause conflicts.
    You should decide which you prefer - Bitdefender or Antiver - and then ditch the other.
