I don't know how to fix your virus, but to stop the shutdown
1. Right click on the desktop, go down to new > shortcut.
2. Type (without the quotes) "shutdown -a" into the box
3. Hit next, and then finished
4. Double click on your icon.
I think you may have Sasser on your computer. I know it eats an entire proceessor, but I think that's your infection.
Good luck and rembener, update before you scan. And get NOD32 scan with it.
You probably have Sasser. You have to update your Windows and after that, you will become immune to that virus. I also recommend you to install good antivirus program, which is definitely Eset NOD32 or Kaspersky.
I also have one good trick for you. When you get a message for windows shutdown, go to start -> run -> and write: shutdown -h |that will remove annoying message so you can continue using Windows without reseting it.
It looks like it is a sasser worm. if you meet up with the shutdown popup again, go to start-->run-->type in "shutdown -a", it shud stop the shutdown. u can then proceed to remove the virus using various AVs.
Are you able to put your computer in sleep mod?
