Just wondering how do I turn off the shutdown that has the "Whatever" has been interrupted, please save all work as the computer is shutting down. Then it has a timer. My computer never does this but my friends has been having problems. How can I turn it off?

Usually thats a virus, so maybe do a virus scan?

You can stop that auto shutdown by first opening a command prompt (Windows key + R, or 'Run' from the start menu, then type 'cmd' and press enter)
Then type 'shutdown /a' without the quotes of course.
If your system is infected and you need time to download a diagnostic and removal tool, you can tell your system not to shutdown.
Run 'services.msc' and look for Remote Procedure Call (RPC). Double click on it and select the Recovery tab. Change the three values from Restart the Computer to Restart Service. It may not be wise to set it on Take No Action but that's up to you =)
If you're really paranoid just leave the three settings alone and change the time from 1 minute to maybe 10 in 'Restart Computer Options'
Hope that helped!
