Should be two of every file in Winsxs. Because they are hard links, the same file with a different name. (Its not a duplicate file. They are the same file.)

Do they have the same size? You can upload one in winsxs or both to the virustotal.com for malware check. Also have a look at the link LogonUI.exe Windows process - What is it?
