Whenever I use IE or Firefox, an error box pop up saying 'generic host process is shutting down'. After that, a 60 seconds box pop up telling me that it is shutting down the computer.

This all start after I got (at least) two viruses on the computer. One was AntiVirus 2008 and the other was a virus that would cause me to goto 'asiuoqgusdbaked.com' when I search for things on the internet. I tried to remove them with McAfee antivirus, Malwarebytes and Smitfraudfix. The Antivirus 2008 is gone, I believe; but the 'asiuopgusdbaked.com' one is still.

What do I need to do?

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to BC!

I highly recommend posting here to get rid of those virus'. This sounds like a security vulnerability that Microsoft has patched, I also highly recommend visiting Windows Update first and getting all the updates possible.

Adam
