    I believe the computer is infected with a virus.....

    Everytime I boot-up the computer and Login to windows XP, I would get a small dialog box saying that it will count down to 10 seconds and will shut down.

    Is my computer being HIjack or this is a spyware within my PC.

    what program can I download to resolve this problem, thanks in advance.

    Sounds like it may be msblast

    Blaster Worm Removal Tool for Windows XP and Windows 2000 (KB833330)


    After that

    Go to http://www.oneknight.co.ukand download 'Hijack This!'.
    make sure it is placed into it's own folder, not a temporary folder. Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
    Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
    Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log (in the security section)
    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
    so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
