Default computer tries to shutdown...

hi..

this is the problem...

I might doing anything on the computer and all of the sudden i would get this message:

Generic host process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close . and When I click on Don't Send...

I get a message telling me that the computer will shutdown in 1 minute..

When I get that message I go to MS-DOS and I type "shutdown -a" and the computer does not shutdown ...

But ..why am I getting this message ?

Thanks

There is a new virus released called W32.Zotob.E and I am able to bet a good amount of money you are infected it spreads like wild fire and it causes your PC to shut down.

Glad i am so glad my PC crashed before that hit me. I had to redo my system yesterday and didnt have the net hooked up till i had all my virus and firewall apps in place. I updated my virus definations from my other ocmputer using a 1Gb memory stick. I get back and hear aobut this virus and think to myself wow glad i was crashed for a day.
