regedit shutdown error

If my system has been running a few hours or more and I shut it down I
get an error message for about one second in the shutdown process. I
was finally able to copy it when notepad had something not saved at
shutdown.

"regedit.exe DLL Initialization Failed
The application failed to initialize because the window station is
shutting down."

I find no relevent entry in the event log.

When I go to system restore I find no restore points for most days, but
I do find a few, and restore is enabled.

If the registry is corrupt,or to restore it to default,go to search at
microsoft.
com,type:307545 Also,307654 Although the topic of the kb articles,it'll
still
restore.

Normally regedit.exe is the Registry Editor.

Why was regedit.exe running when you shut down?

Did you start it?

If not... you may have been infected with a strain of the Brid.A worm.

Update your antivirus software and run a full system scan.

Good questions, I had assumed regedit was running as part of the system
restore point setup. I do not normally start it manually, and if I did
I would shut it down.
I run Kaspersky AV Personal, and my definations are updated at least
daily [today]. and a complete scan once a week. It scanned today and
found no virus. I have just run Symantec's tool, according to its
directions,with no result. System restore is now disabled. Still get the
error message.
Thanks
