recently i had the ms blaster worm i found this and removed it deleted through xp on different partition but when i went online both copys of xp kept shutting down with nt authoirty (thingy).

i did a format and reinstall but still it kept shutting down with this nt Authority
evertime i went online

so how is it that microsoft can shut down windows xp

Have you got a legit/registered version of xp?

Have you installed the blaster patch?

Its not MS shutting you down - you've got the virus again.

You need to install the patch from MS to stop the worm getting on your PC and then get up to date AV!!

The NT Authority is misleading but has nothing to do with MS - its a Windows thing.

No i havent got the virus again

and this happened went the virus first came out
as i said i did full installation after reformat

and evertime i CONNECTED to the internet to get the updates eventhough i didnt have the virus because i used the remover tool to check for it my virus software was updated bythen too

my pc was still shut down both copys on duel boot would shut down when connected.

Don't think it's any good trying to download the patch until you've got rid of the virus/worm. deleting it doesn't get rid of it. Do a search in windows for dllhost.exe if its bigger than 6kb then that is probably the worm but it may also have a registry entry hence the need of a 'cleaner'. downloaded mine from click here

the worm will cross the boundary of a dual boot system. It did with mine.

If it is shutting down with the NTAuthority Message when you access the net YOU HAVE THE WORM AGAIN.

If you did not apply the patch then the Worm can easily get back on your system

Scan with Stinger and tell me you system is clean.
