Have had this happening for a while.... thought it's time to figure it out. Always, when shutting down the machine or logging out of Windows, I hear the critical stop sound just before the exit Windows sound. This sound does not correspond with anything in the Event Viewer or Scheduled Tasks...that I can see. Although this has been occurring for a while, I do know that this issue did not always occur on this computer. Of course, all AV/AS scans are clean. Any help would be appreciated.


ps- Just an FYI.... I did find a new sch. task that I am guessing came along with IE8. It is some sort of feed updater.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\msfeedssync.exe sync
