When choosing "Turn off Computer" on Windows XP's start bar, the dialog
window  "Stand by | Turn off | Restart " comes up BUT it is different.

It now has:

"Click Turn Off to install important updates and turn off your computer"

I clicked "Turn Off" yesterday and it made the normal dialog to shut down
start happening again. (this was after watching some processes happen before
automatic power-down). After using my computer for a couple days now, that
peculiar "shut-down" dialog window comes up again. Do you know what is
happening?  Is this a virus?
