Somehow this got picked up on one of the office computers!
Did a lot of digging & tried several 'fixes', none of which has worked.
First off, the shutting down feature of this keeps me from getting very far with any of the fixes.
I've tried going to a command prompt & running shutdown -a, but I either get a response that a shutdown isn't in progress or one already is & it can't be stopped.

Kaspersky Rescue disk, seemed to find something on first scan, but didn't fix it & any scan since shows nothing.
Running Malwarebytes from the Hiren's CD doesn't find it (the message that it can't be run from mini XP was confusing...)

MS Security Essentials picks up on them, but of course, the computer shuts down before anything can be done.

At this point, I am almost ready to format & re-install, but figured I'd try my luck here & am open to suggestions!

Welcome texan767,
Appears we will need a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run (it may not on a 64 bit system) skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
