    When I start may computer and Im in the logon screen, the text beside the shutdown button reads ""turn off computer". but when i logon and press the winkey+L later on the text reads "turn off qasda",.

    Can someone tell me if this is a virus, spyware and the likes,...

    You must have the "special" version of XP.

    Is your computer named "qasda"?

    On my computer, the welcome screen displays "turn off computer" when I first boot. But when I switch users (Win+L), it changes to "turn off <computer description>". I guess that the welcome screen is updated with the computer name only after you logon for the first time.

    If you go to System Properties (press Win+Break) and go to the Computer Name tab, I'm betting you'll find "qasda" in the 'Computer description' box. If not, then I'm as stumped as you are.

    You're right! I was'nt the one who changed the "Computer Description". Someone did it without my knowledge! Oh well, time to change my password, and thank you very much for the help.............

    More good reason why I should visit this site everytime I connect............
