I got a virus called winlogin.exe on my computer on September 5 and I entered some information on the computer on September 6 on a website so I would like for someone to do forensics if any information has been recorded or anything like that.
- Where are you located?
- Why the two month wait?
- Are you concerned that the virus recorded your keystrokes 2 months ago or is continuing the record it right now still
- Do you still have the virus on your computer? Why hasn't it been removed?
- What exactly are you wanting the examiner to do for you?
As with anything Artander, we need a lot more information to even begin to see if anyone here can be of any help.

Reading your short description, I do not see where a forensics examiner would be of any help. I am sure if you were to find one in your area they would be happy to look through your computer and provide a report, but I seriously believe that having this done would be cost prohibitive.
If you have been continuing to use the computer in question, finding any evidence of what the malware may have done becomes much less likely.
So, in short, if you have continued using the computer in question, you will probably be paying a forensics company several thousand dollars to be told "We were unable to conclusively determine what, if any, information was transferred by the malware."
