I discovered a process in my Task Manager that I have never seen before, winlogon.exe, and decided to Google it. I discovered that as long as it is in System32 it is safe. Mine is not. Mine has no file location. The CPU and Memory it uses never changes. I have ran a quick and flash scan on Malwarebytes AntiMalware and I am currently running a full scan. Anyone got any experience or know how to get rid of it?

Please do not use up your time on this anymore. I had a friend help me. Ran other programs such as rkill and it was clean.

Actually, I am not so sure. It's still appearing in my task manager after last night and it still has no file location. Task host and task eng are also open and have not been open when I have ever checked before.
