   Many thanks for your reply Tech, have posted two or three times before with this problem, even suggesting that it might[be a FP but I had been told to do many things but no suggestion that it probably was an FP.

   I never intended to run Defender, I presume each time I installed MSE, it disabled Defender but when I uninstalled MSE, Defender was re-enabled and with realtime protection in addition-overkill, running with Avast5, SuperAntispyware Pro and MBAM!

   Cheers Tech,

I agree with Gargamel360, upload the file to virustotal, and when it comes clean exclude it to avoid any conflicts.
Generally speaking, I always try to avoid running multiple realtime scanners that covers same areas . If my AV finds a treat, that for instans SAS, MBAM and Defender also covers, the last thing that I want is a conflict with cleaning that treat.

BobbyZee67 I don't know for how long you will be willing to put up with that
mess called Avira10 but most likely you will uninstall it in a short time. False
positives happens and they have to happen and we,the users, just have to
learn how to handle them. Once you learn how to deal with detections it is
very easy to know the difference between malware and false positives.
I have used both Anti virus applications and Avast to this day it has not made
any erroneous detections but with Avira9 I had 12 false positives in the year
that I used it.
I never get infected and don't depend on my AV to keep me clean but if you
do,then you are better protected by Avast than Avira because of the extra 
shields you have with Avast that you don't have with Avira.
Hope to see you back Bobby.

did all that but after reboot am still cannot login and am getting the "Logon Process Initialization Failure" has failed message. This is getting really ridiculous, after paying $57 and have to go 6 uninstalls is really a joke, whilst my free version 4.8 was working perfectly. I regret now paying for it.
