I posted a couple of days ago and said that I had a problem with my XP system shutting down with the message that NT Authority was doing it with a problem in RCP aswell. You guys kindly told me that I'd picked up the Blaster virus and links to various removal tools and patches.Trouble is I've downloaded the Norton tool and Stinger and neither of them could find the virus on my PC. When I try and install the patch it only stays open for 20 seconds or so and I'm sure it's not installing. In desperation as it's a fairly new PC I reinstalled XP and the virus is still there, well I assume it is because I still get the same shutdown message. Some times my system shuts down after 10 minutes or so, other times it will let me continue for 2 hours or so! Have I got a particulary strong form of the virus do you think, and any other ideas on how to get rid of it. Thanks
Yes I'm sure I turned off sys restore before I ran Stinger but I guess I can check that again, I must admit after running that and the Norton removal tool a few times I may of got caught out with the sys restore.
The patch you mention is one of the ones I downloaded from a link someone else gave me and for some reason I can't get it to run.
