    winlogon.exe won't open

    When I'm trying to open winlogon.exe, nothing happens! Is it supposed to be opened like that and my computer has a problem, or am I just doing something wrong?

    winlogon.exe is the actual logon screen, it should always be running in the background. winlogon owns the ctrl+alt+del key combonation, so when you press that combo you activate winlogon.exe. You can't launch a secon winlogon process
