It's all going horribly wrong!

I've just finished putting my sisters PC together & installed XP, no problem. I registered an internet account for her (Tiscali no monthly fee 56K). The PC has no problems connecting to the net but after about 3-5 mins an error message appears saying it is going to shut down the PC. The message contained something like this:
The shutdown was initiated by NT Authority/system.
Then it goes on about a Remote procedure call (RPC).
I've had enough of computers, I'm going to take up fell walking.

Afraid you've contracted Blaster - the patch must be installed before connecting to the Internet for the first time.

Type Blaster into the search box for the fix.
