Winlogon.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are dead in the water with an old W2K Pro box that handles our POS transactions. We do not have any backups or image of the machine when it was live.

    The hard drive is in tact. The last thing i was doing was trying to capture an image (being proactive).

    I installed Symantec SRD 8.5 and after the system reboot the message, "Winlogon.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You need to restart the program. An error log is being created." prevents the desktop from loading.

    Symantec support could not do anything for me. i have run chkdsk /F /R I have also tried loading the registry hive and removing startup items.

    If the last resort is to perform an in-place upgrade of Windows 2000, will my POS programs continue to function?

    Thank you for your help.
