Ok this is really strange, I was shutting my computer down, via the start menu, and then it tells me I must end this program. Its just a letter followed by some numbers. It does this something similar three more times, and then for a second I see it shutting down something saying Should not see me, then my computer proceeded to shut down normally. I want to know, what the hell is that? Kinda freaked me out like something is on my computer spying on me. :eek:

I don't know what it is. Could be a virus of some sort. A friend had that happen once before, but he had no protection so that's what I told him it was. I've never had it myself nor looked into it more deeply.

A quick jaunt down Google doesn't reveal any information about a virus, trojan, or bit of malware that this may be. Windows gets stuck now and again (for example, whenever I shut down I get an "End Program..." dialog for NAV), and this may just be Windows doing it's thing, with a bit of programming cutesiness that never got changed.

Iv had that one aswell after installing something, can't remember what though, maybe display drivers. Just a result of bad programming, someone named the install process should not see me because it made some sense to him, but it gives the rest of us the jitters..

If you didnt newly install something it could be troubles :p

This is so very true, and exceedingly common with software developers. You should see some of the stuff that comes up in source code, especially variable names and comments. Comments are the best: you'll find stuff like "this doesn't work right, but they say it's OK" or "need to fix this" and the like. Engineers just don't think about their end users :)

I just had the same experience on a computer I was using. I had been installing software for a Multimedia keyboard. It looks like the installation theory could be the answer.
