For the last 3 days after I've shut down my PC via the usual Start menu and when I've come back to it in the morning and it's been switched on/booted up!?! Yesterday I re-installed XP, no low level format but did create a seperate partition for Linux which was'nt there before and ran the full NTFS formatting option, I figure this could fuk up a previously installed *ware After the re-install it happened again so I booted into safe mode and ran up to date versions of AVG, SpyBot, Adaware, AVG spyware (was Ewido) and CWshredder. All that was found was a few tracking cookies. Can an infection really get your PC to switch it's self on? When I shut down a previously installed copy of Fedora ( on the 2nd partition/same hard drive ) it did'nt happened. Thanks for any info!!
