End Task message when shutdown windows.

  1. Since i moved my Harddrive to a new case and updated my motherboard and such, i will receive End Program Now or End task errors whenever i shut down my computer. I turn off all programs and the only stuff that is running is what is in the taskbar. This did not happen with my old setup but now occurs regularly when i shutdown my computer, any suggestions?
    The window asks me to "End Now" and says at the top "End Program - Missing Virus Definitions"

    Does it say what process it's ending

    Also you can try Startup, to see what actually starts with your computer (that you can disable)
