Our computer running Windows 2000 pro has started to shut down and immediately restart itself, usually in safe mode, when on line. Happening with increasing frequency - every feww minutes and since the installation of a McAfee firewall update. Doesn't seem to happen when off line.
Any ideas?

sounds like the worm-blaster virus, there are free tools on the internet to fix it, just run the tool and delete it, then keep your FW running and updated at all times
