everytime i connect to the internet using XP pro. i get a pop-up window saying my computer will be shutdown due to NT AUTHOURITY/SYSTEM and automatically shutsdown in 1 minute. i only run outlook and IE 6.0. Any ideas on wot it is and how to stop it?

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

Oh and then get Anti Virus installed. Update it and KEEP it updated. click here is free.
