A problem has suddenly occured. When I run Adaware SE from my desktop, after a few seconds of the smart system scan I get a message "Windows is shutting down" (with a 1 minute countdown). Shutdown initiated by NT Authority system. RMC Terminated unexpectedly." I notice that, for the 1st time ever, the Adaware at this point has picked up a critical object near the beginning of the system scan...during the WINXP part.
So I am left with a blank desktop and have to reboot manually, usually prompting a disk check.
Any ideas what might have happened and the cure? Keep it simple please!
It was a blaster virus! Since my Panda Platinum Antivirus 2007 updates daily, it must somehow have slipped through the net! I've removed Adaware in any case since I can't see that its really necessary with Windows own Disk Clean, plus regular sweeps by CCleaner and the continually operating Panda antivirus. Many thanks for all your help guys.
