  1. This happened to me twice but never again, I scanned with adaware, it found adware running, it said it'll scan again when I next reboot, but this thing came up and made the system shut down in 1 min or whatever it started at, so I turned my PC back on, Adaware came up, and it happened again, a third time it didnt happen. Happed about 3 days ago, havnt seen it since.

    Anything to be worried about?

    Thanks, except Im totally up to date, updates, service packs and all, I downloaded the patch and it tells my Im updated to a later update than the patch, and I can only install the patch on un-service packed computers.

    your right, but that was right after I got done scanning, and I forgot about deleting that cuz I was saving all my apps, bceause that thing came up, but afterwards I deleted it.

    It hasnt come up again/yet though so :)

    That's very strange. Let us know if you get it back.
