"The system is going down in 4 minutes"

I was 'surfing' the web...

www. pcadvisor .com | www. play. com | www. lloydstsb. com | www. windowsforum. org

All of sudden a message box popped reading.

"Microsoft Internet Explorer

The system is going down in 4 minutes"

Virus scan revealed nothing...Never seen that message before.

My 4 mins is still not up.

Times up!


My system did not go "down"

Are you still there

  powerless 00:12 19 Aug 03

Sure am ;-)

What kind of message box? - A window? - a standard Widows message box? - a MSMessanger messge box - something else?

What operating system? not win2000 or XP by any chance

  powerless 00:25 19 Aug 03

A standard Widows message box with an "ok" as the only clickable option.

I only found one reference in google groups. Nothing to help there...

I think this system is going down it about 5 mins

  powerless 00:26 19 Aug 03

Oh yeah don't have my signature on here...

Windows XP with SP1.

Event logs show nothing.

Does your system have a smile on its face?

Maybe it did go down while you weren't looking!
