Do I have A Virus/Malware?

Very often (but not always) when I go to shut down my computer (1 year old HP running Win XP) I get a pop-up screen saying that something is not closed & then closes it. The program is something I never heard of & starts with "huhV94maxwOR......" it ends to fast for me to get it all. Anyone have any ideas what it could be/how to get rid of it? (I have run Mcafee anti virus & Adaware Antispyware but it's still there?? (I have also done a search of all files & folders with no rseults)

Check Start - Programs - Startup and see what is there..
While you are looking at it, you can right-click on most everything there and delete the shortcuts..

start by disabling a phone modem if you have one and don't use it. look for any telephony programs running.
