Sounds like the blaster or sasser worm, for wich Microsoft has released a patch (MS03-026) over 5 years(!) ago.

Go to the [url-http://update.microsoft.com]MS update site[/url] and install ALL available updates.

To stop the counter: start > run > shutdown -s

Hi...

If you are able to keep the system on for any length of time, you can try running an online scan here...

http://housecall65.trendmicro.com/

You might want to download and run these rootkit scanners as well...

F-Secure's Blacklight...

http://www.f-secure.com/security_center/

(scroll down to "downloads.")

Trend Micro Rootkit-Buster...

http://www.trendmicro.com/download/rbuster.asp

I would also recommend this regimen from Tech, another member of this forum. Go to the fourth post at this thread...

Hope this helps. :)

Best Regards...

If this is the case...

Here is a scanner from Microsoft that checks your system and determines whether you need the patch...

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=13ae421b-7bab-41a2-843b-fad838fe472e&displaylang=en

If you do, the patch is located here...

http://www.download.com/Microsoft-Security-Update/3000-2239_4-42495.html

Hope this helps. :)

Best Regards...

Yes you do have the time for a scan and updates. Run the shutdown command or run taskmanager and disable the cullprit first or boot in safe mode with network options.

Yes, I understand that. But I wrote my response before you added the link and additional comments to yours. ::)

But it's alright, may God Bless you and yours just the same. :)
