    Big Trouble

    OK I need your HELP BAD.

    About 1 hour ago my virus program pick-up the W32.SPYBOT.WORM. I had to reformat my harddisk and install WXP again.

    But This is the problem. Every time I install a new copy of windows XP and then connect to the net I get a window popup saying that. WINDOWS NT AUTHORITY WILL SHUT DOWN. Or something like that. And my PC restarts

    I am at my wits end here. I cannot stop it happening.

    I cannot connect to the net because every time I do I get the virus so how am I suppose to stop this from happening. arrrrrrrrrr. Please someone help me.

    did a google and found this if it's any help http://support.gateway.com/s/issues/2-928610104.shtml

    also this http://www.mvps.org/marksxp/WindowsXP/rpc.php

    iric if you do a slipstream of windows with SP2 you will have the patches installed with windows and the problem should not occur.

    Have you tried installing a software firewall after installing Windows but before you connect to the net. Sounds like you are being hit by the blasterworm as soon as you connect to the net.

    Have you got a firewall program that you can install at all, even if it is just a trial version off a cover disc. Install that before installing and setting up you're net connection (If its NTL with the cable modem disconnect the modem from the PC before installing Windows). I had the exact same problem when I had the NTL World connection.

    There is a Windows hotfix for that problem but initially you need to get a firewall on the pc to stop the virus doing that after installation.

    The link is to McAfee's "Stinger"; it's about the best removal tool I've found. It isn't just Blaster that causes that error; other worms like Sasser do also. Stinger's effective.

    The XP firewall can be enabled from the properties for your network or modem connection under Start, All Programs, Accessories, Communications, Network Connections. Right click on the connection and go to Properties, Advanced.
