Repeated automatic shutdown? Sounds like the Blaster worm...

avast! can delete it, but since it doesn't spread via files or email (but rather by a buffer overflow in network protocol), an ordinary antivirus cannot avoid it (only a firewall could).
To prevent the repeated infection, you have to install the corresponding security patch.

Simply activate the XP's internal firewall, install  ZA Free if you have the time to download it :

install the windows updates patches , run Avast or run a free blaster removel tool found at :

Hey guys, this is just like shoot somewhere in the dark... guy has already left, just like in good old cartoons... cloud of dust and nothing else...

I like those very much. They come, spit and tell us few stupid things, like "this antivirus is bunch of bull"... He has no clue what is his virus problem, probably he's never heard of Blaster Worm, 'cause if he has, he wouldn't act like some spoiled brat... oh, God. What was the intention of his post ? If he needed some help, why doesn't he ask for expert's opinions and try to be patiend and finaly solve his problem ?

This way, his PC is probably in much deeper sh..

Cheers !

Hahaha... that's exactly what I thought it is...

NORTON: "let's send some external enemies and make them be internal... into the core of the avast!"

Avast!: "That's good... it means that they are affraid of us, and we are on their way, so it's the proof that we are darn good..."

I see it that way...

Cheers !
