Start, Run, type

shutdown -a

(note space before -)

This should stop it shutting down.

Go to Windows update and doe=wnload all critical updates.

Apologies for repetition - got the closing message again and thought it hadn't taken.

Thanks VoG - I thinks Stinger has done the trick -it found and cleared 4 viruses.

Make sure that you get the Windows updates or you'll soon be in trouble again.

Have you got a good firewall?

I'm using the Windows firewall - is there something better?
