Hi Phil,
Try going to MS security update, this happened to me and caused me a lot of pain,it is a worm virus and the security update did the trick and stopped the shutdown,
this is the MS link/page:

Definately blaster - had the same problems - get it fixed from link above then goto Win Update pick a dozen or so of the smallest security updates (less than 1MB) you can (if on dialup) otherwise get ALL security AND critical patches/fixes (if broadband) repeat untill all updates are installed; do a virus/spyware/malware scan and all should be happy !
