    Its a program that allows you to explore dll and exe files to modify things in dialogs like the start menu text, im just intrested winlogon.exe contains quite alot of intresting dialogs

    I cannot explain it, :) all I know of winlogon is that it places a report in the application section of event viewer after you have run checkdisk.

    You could go to the website for this program and see if they have a forum available , then you could ask the question of other users of this program

    Elizabeth23 has likely never used the ResourceHacker program. I have used it to extract icons, and also replace icons in explorer.exe.

    That window is just another authorize window that requires admin level credentials to follow through on a system command.

    You may have never seen it in action as you may be the only user on your computer.
