    Has anyone else found this? I'm afraid. I don't know how I could of gotten this. It was found in C:\i386\winlogin.exe If I delete this will it mess up my log in?

    Here too ! Just did a scan - files found are C:\Windows\system32\dll cache\winlogon.exe and C:\Windows\system32\winlogon.exe

    Probably a false positive - see this link to a2 forum: http://forum.emsisoft.com/Default.aspx?g=posts&t=1757

    Let's wait for confirmation, as you can see from above link, nothing else detects this.

    This has been raised on the a-squared Support forum, no definite answer to this yet.

    Check back with the A2 support forum. They just said officially that it's a false positive. At last!

    Ooops! Guess somebody beat me to this news!
