Default Weird message

When I shut down my new PC, I see a message

"Ending program - Should not see me"


WTF?

It is a just debug message often used in switch() where there is not *supposed* to be another case than the ones enumerated
in the code. Often programmers will choose to put a default case with a message like the one you have written to spot memory
corrupting code or logic errors.

You will be fine. Nothing to worry about. Usually happens when a programs shutdowns down abnormally. Not a virus or adaware/spyware.
