    In the Event Viewer I've a lot of errors about "Event ID 6003 winlogon" from
    30 January to 28 March (I performed a clean installation on 30 January).
    Is it a bug? Do you have these event id 6003 winlogon errors into Event

    Event ID: 6003 Source: Winlogon and says:
    The winlogon notification subscriber <TrustedInstaller> was unavailable to
    handle a critical notification event.

    And only today I've got a similar error during the logon, i.e. I clicked on
    my user, typed my password and Vista shown a dialog box with a similar/same
    error, then I retried again an login worked.

    anti-spyware, etc. Try running manual updates on these and see if you get

    I had a misbehaving piece of software that activated a UAC message every
    time it went to check for updates. Then last week, I get a notice that a new
    version is available and everything has been as expected since.
