When i boot up windows a cmd script appears and shuts down windows.
Virus and adware/spyware scans were made but nothing was picked up. Is
there a solution to this problem?

When you log into Windows, type the following in the Run dialog box to
abort the shutdown

shutdown -a

Then go to msconfig (Winkey+R > msconfig) and disable all the startup
items, then re-enable one start up item at a time and reboot to find the
culprit that is causing the shutdown.

I will give a hint, the startup item in the location /might/ contain

shutdown;
..cmd file, or
..bat file.

Once you find the culprit, post back and someone or myself will tell you
how to delete this startup entry.
