This morning I encountered a weird Windows error for the first time. An error message box saying that "Winlogon.exe has encountered an error" appeared. I clicked OK, and my Windows 2000 computer rebooted immediately.

Upon rebooting, I fired up my IE browser only to get a pop-up window from Winsoftware.com saying I may have spyware. I also got a window prompting to install WinKiller from the WinSoftware Corporation.

This pop-up happens nearly everytime.

I ran all of the tests recommended on the forum before posting. The pop-up still appears.

Here is my HijackThis log:
