Posted on 2008-06-23

I am sporadically getting a "SYSTEM SHUTDOWN..WINDOWS MANGEMENT" message.  It has a decrementing timer displayed (time until system shutdown) at which time it says the system will shut down.

I have suspicions that this is the reuslt of a virus or worm, but do not know how to remove.

Any help would be appreciated.

I can't remember which ones specifically do this, but some services will cause this message to be displayed if they ever shut down.

Check your event logs to see if any services are failing.  Odd behavior doesn't necessarily mean it's a virus.
