While using XP(home)on IE6 I got a message that said NTAuthority\system is shutting down in 60 seconds with a red X.I quickly noted the message to Microsoft before it all shut down ..something like Generic Host Process RPC Terminated then
swvchost.exe and szApp ver.512600.00 and SZModname.
Now the message NT Authority \System message comes up btween 1 and ten mintes after
