Logout and shutting down from Winxp ultra-slow. 70 sec-delay or blocked
In Winxp after a security-run with AVG, Malwarebytes, Adwcleaner JRT i encountered a sudden blocking of logout from the accounts.
maybe with an additional combination of Ctrl + Alt + Delete will finally trigger that, maybe also with alt + f4.
I can switch between accounts.
but i must wait long 70 secs. sometimes i am pressing quickly soft-shutdown-button to trigger.
tried a lot and altered registry. will show that site since i dont know for all settings which is default. and running a program.
yes defraggler had been done 10 days ago or 8. swapfile is fine.
at least i have a not so old backup of systempartition.
malwarebytes will now run. avg didtn find anything serious.
maybe the reason for all this that i simply deleted what adwcleaber had found and didnt check that beforehand.
Thanks. Yes i will switch to Win7 in the next weeks.....on other drive.
update: i did a repair-installation with SP2-cd. sp3 installed afterwards and videodriver installed.
outlook seems not working, cannot send.
search-assistant is also gone. i dont have the drives indexed. at least not C: thats why search normally only working with the assistant.
have some open question which avg will answer soon regarding hidden report-file. thus the search which didnt find with windows search i have now.

workaround to reestablish search-assistant
No working for me.
I ran uphclean once. no improvement.
forgot to mention.
beside admin and restricted account which are older i created a new one with restrictions.
Found possible solutions-lets pray
none of the workarounds are really working. I am waiting and waiting pc logging off.
waiting until loggoff-menue is coming and more until executed.

If winlogon trigger in registry: PowerdownAfterShutdown set to 1(was 0) not help then there seems no workround anymore.
only maybe removing AVG internet security. Trial not free version.... ouuch!
Unbelievable but true. My winxp-problem with account-logoff and shutdown is solved.
i could be AVG. Had two versions of different AVG installed. internet security trial and ZEN.
also outlokk working again.
it lasted one day until see the problem ist gone-i was absent.
I am now unsure if i should reinstall the right AVG free version. I am in their forum.
since programs are listed in revo, after having internet security removed, i couldnt see Zen there anymore or had never be seen....
and remove also didnt see but i could see the icon. now everything is gone and PC working properly.
yes also did a rerun of the security software. AVG, Malwarebytes, adwcleaner(this time not deleting-what is deleting for?), JRT
only didnt yet run eset onlinescanner.
how about removing system-recovert points? all but last one.
shouldnt i do at least before running defraggler?
PC is now running perfectly and i think its booting quicker, i can navigate quicker. winxp
But when logging out admin-account and login restricted account pc will restart. normal shutdown and reboot.
Same problem of restarting pc instead of login on both accounts restriced and admin.
its a winlogon-exe-problem
maybe this can help:
Could solve by repair-installation with all updates But now i have an OEM-key on the system. Repair-installation asked for a different one. and activation is needed.
what next? changing key?
Successful activation. No i know no key needed.... only had the "wrong" repair-cd. original one marke "defective".
BIG MISTAKE: i gave AVG another chance. PC blocked incl. System recovery
after succesful "cleaning" of my pc from the mentioned problems here-i never had a quicker winxp beforehand after these steps were done-i gave AVG Zen= AVG protection= AVG Antivirus Free(what the hell are three names for for the same?) another chance. That was no good idea.
i couldnt roll back the system. any attempts to get system-recovery failed.
Could only by a repair-installation. Where i am now. Yes found the right copy of winxp-CD SP2.
but afterwards it seems i didnt use the right SP3. who knows. When i tried to install winfuture german full latest updatepack it failed. its not the right OS...?
must now make a rollback and reinstall SP3 which i could find here(still online on googledrive):
found here, also SP1 and SP2 available.
i have found informations that also kaspersky caused the same problem which i had here.
So which antivirus do i need for winxp?
Yes, malwarebytes is also removed-temporarily. Should i get a paid version of what?

know how to rollback. problem is do i need german version of sp3 or is it neutral?
i seems i have used the wrong one from a cd.
I am also referring to the winfuture dot de updatepacks which are for german versions only.
i was using the full one(system not matching...). last time a day ago it worked. maybe i should go back and retry.
but the partly-updatepack would certainly also not work since the older updates will lacking there.
