The system is closing down due to
NT Authority System

Remote procedure Call(RPC) terminated unexpectadley.
The system does a countdown then shuts down and boots up again, it appears worse when on Ebay.
Does anyone think this is a Virus and advise please if possible.

yes, 100% certain u have the blaster virus. Use a Firewall to keep it out when u get rid of it. (Not the 1 built into Windows. It is crap)
