Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

The shutdown window keeps coming up and my computer shuts down

\015 No matter what I'm doing at the time, my computer will show the window to turn off the computer as if I clicked on the start icon and selected the turn off icon. If I don't click cancel fast enough, the computer shuts down. It also starts itself up too. Some times it will not happen for more than an hour, but most of the time it's almost constant. I am using windowsXP home version. Please help me with this as I am ready to take a hammer to it :-) thank you\015

This is probably due to a virus.. there are many viruses that do this.. Until you fix it you can open

gpedit.msc -> computer configuraton -> windows settings ->\015\012security settings -> local policies -> user rights assignment\015\012-> shut down the system -> remove everyone from shutting down\015\012the system.
This wont let anyone including you shut down the system including you but that would keep the system on until you fix the problem. I will check for the virus that does this and post back..
Go into control panel and find display properties.
click the 'screen saver' tab at the top in display properties.
click the power button displayed in display properties under 'screen saver 'tab.
