Lingering winlogon problem

I am suffering from some problem that seems to be related to winlogon.exe and have been trying to sort it out for the last week now... Forgive me in my description, for although I know a bit about computers I know relatively little on how windows works!

The problem started with the computer not launching explorer at startup - which i was able to do through the task manager however when explorer loaded the whole system was extremely slow even though nothing seemed to be going through the CPU and the disk was not reading... On restart every time I clicked the username it logged on and logged off straight away…
I removed the LAN cable to cut it off from the network and internet, figuring it was a virus.


I then ran McAfee and Spyware Doctor scans in safe mode which picked up, among a few others, something wrong with winlogon.exe along with ntos.exe and twex.exe in the system32 folder but was unable to delete it because it was a system process.
(I did notice at this time that pctsSvc.exe (a service for Spyware Doctor as far as I know) was using 100% CPU and around 250,000k of mem (which is I’m pretty sure isnt normal) )

After many restarts and virus scans using both McAfee and Spyware Doctor different infections were popping up each time after restart – even with no internet access – and the system is working extremely slowly, with one full scan once taking over 24hrs!


Now forgive me for not knowing huge amounts about windows processes but a few things struck me as strange firstly the 7 instances of svchost.exe, 2 winlogon.exe (one using about 44,000k the other about 400k) and 3 winimpvs.exe (or something similar)

I now seem to be going round in circles with McAfee not picking anything up anymore and Spyware Doctor seemingly plucking random files off my disk that didn’t come up in previous scans. I’m in way over my head and not really sure what to do now – considering re-installing windows but it looks like something is replicating viruses all over my hard drive so if anybody can help that would be great.

Sorry about the length of post but I figure that more detail is better than not enough! I’ll leave my Hijack This log after this post once I wait for the infected computer to start up again.

Many thanks in advance!

Looking back on the system the file was winimprvse.exe, and in the anti-virus logfiles wininit.exe was also infected during a scan.

Here's my Hijack This log after the computer stabilised - each time i log on after restart computer freezes for around 4-5 mins before loading any of the startup items, and will then freeze again for a considerable amount of time!

There really isn't much wrong in that log. Download, update & run anti malware from malwarebytes.org

Tried an anti-malware scan which helped - picked up a few registry changes including the one that starts the computer with disabled firewall. Great!
BUT
After a restart, another clean malware scan and another restart computer is still unresponsive and unstable ???

Has anyone heard of winlogon virus reaping this much damage on a system before? Most people i've spoken to have just simply removed it 1st time- most say that McAfee, spyware doctor OR Anti-malware can remove it by themselves???

Are you updating anti malware each time you run it? If not, the scan is worthless.
