Anyone know how to get rid of a shutdown command in the cmd.exe. I must have gotten some virus or whatever, but when my comp finishes loading all my programs, a black screen comes up and says
C:\windows/system32/documents & settings/"name"/Shutdown -t 00 -s -f
then off she goes.

how can I get rid of this..it's pretty annoying.
