Two Glitches

Hi people
I have two problems that may be related and couldbe viral.
Firstly - on shut down my pc goes through all the usual steps but instead of automatically switching off a dash appears at the top of the screen and I have no option but shutting the pc down by switching it off.
on restart it always wants to do a scan disk.
Fearing a virus I opened norton and to my surprise after 10-20 seconds the norton program shuts down and disappears.
The same happens with mcfee ??????????
Now I'm stumped all other programs operate without problem but I know there is something somewhere upset or infected.
Please help.
