    I installed XP pro on my friends pc today...logged on to the net and received a message shortly after saying ( windows will be shut down save all work ) initiated by the NT Aurthority System...and something about Remote procedure call....she had this same version I installed on another harddrive and it worked fine...the win cd is a copied cracked version.

    If your pc is infected with MS Blaster it should show up in task manager processes....is this correct?

    Youll get a litlle gray box pop up on your screen telling you windows will shut down in 60 seconds.

    My uncle had this virus on his machine, it was a real pain to get rid of as I only had about 2 minutes on the net before the shutdown in 60secs came up. I downloaded the fix from symantec it said it had removed the virus. Then i restart and gues what it hadnt removed it. I found the only way to remove it was to download a windows patch from microsoft. This does not allow the virus to shut down the computer even if it is on the computer. I then ran the fix from symantec and removed the virus.

    I hate this virus, it took me ages to remove it!

    if u go to start?run> type in cmd then press enter,

    on the command prompt that comes up type shutdown -a it stops the computer from shutting down, just a tip incase anybody ever encounters the virus again, and is having trouble removing it.
