Winlogon.exe at 50% CPU

Had a client that was getting 50% cpu on the winlogon.exe in the task manager. Did the normal virus/spyware check/remove. Found out it was related to the offline option in XP when connected to Windows Domains. Turning off the offline files and restarting the PC solved the problem. If you have an XP Pro connected to a windows domain go to My Computer-Tools-Folder Options-Offline Files. Turn off Offline files. I normally turn it off because it can cause slowness and nuisance if you don’t need it. Only time I activate it is on people running laptops that needs to access files off the server while away from the domain.
