xp keeps closing my machine

I have just upgraded to XP and every time I try and download the latest xp drivers it closes the machine half way through.

remote procedure call - what does this mean?

You have got the Blaster virus.

First Start, Run and type

shutdown -a

and click OK. This will give you more time.

Next, get the MS Patch. Without it you'll be reinfected every time you connect: click here

Then run either Stinger click here or the Norton removal tool click here

and make sure you disable system restore while cleansing.

Thanks Vog & Johnnyrocker

I caught the buggers when I reactivated my virus scan!

Ps took your avice and downloaded the patch
