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,...

I would appreciate any help extended to me,....

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............

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
