RE: system shut down

Hi Vinod,

You might be infected with a virus. To scan your system for viruses, I recommend you run the Trend Micro HouseCall virus scan. This virus scanner will scan your computer for viruses from the net so that you don't have to install any software. You can find their virus scanner here:

Trend Micro HouseCall Virus Scanner

If the system starts to shut down while you are scanning, or doing something else to try to fix it, you can abort the countdown by going Start > Run. Then in the "Open:" box type "shutdown -a" (without the double quotes).

Nortyvorty on January 9, 2012
RE: system shut down

This is an ongoing problem that has had no resolve for many, I suggest
that you try this and if it halts the shutdown, then run your antivirus'

XP users goto START - RUN and type shutdown -a

VISTA users need to type shutdown /a

good luck
Nortyvorty on January 9, 2012
RE: system shut down

Once the above is done, look for something in your startup folder, maybe
a .bat .exe .com .sys that should not be there....

RIGHT click it and goto edit, check if there is a shutdown command in
there...

If so delete the file.
