I think I've got the same virus I had about a year ago. After I've been online for a couple of minutes, it comes up with a window saying 'system error - windows has got to shut down - please save your files' and then you've got about 1 min before it shuts down.
My AVG anti-vrus is up to date and I quickly managed to do download another update this morning before it shut down, but I'm guessing that I need another XP patch and a stinger?
Would someone be able to post something up that I can download and take home?
It very typical of blaster worm infestation. I was affected a few months ago but was fortunate enough to download the removal tool before being disconnected from internet. You can download the blaster-worm removal tool from microsoft.com website to a disk using some other computer. You would then need to install that tool onto your machine. Just enter 'blaster worm' in the search box on MS website to locate the necessary downloads. hope it's useful to you.
I didn't have time to run it completely this morning before I left for work, but I ran it for 20 mins and it didn't find anything. I think I'll need finish doing this before installing a patch. I update my anti virus on a daily basis so I'm annoyed that the same thing has come back.
