Shut down in 1 minute

  [DELETED] 16:12 09 Nov 2003

I have a lap top running xp professional and connect to the net using Tiscali. After a short while on the net I get a warning window appear saying "Save all open documents as this computer is shutting down in one minute"
Is this Blaster? (I have done a virus check using Norton and there is a virus, But I can not get rid of it using Norton's removal tool, Yes I have turnded off "Restore" prior to using virus tool)
Any Ideas folks ?

Windows must now restart because the Remote Procedure Call
(RPC) service terminated unexpectedly.

is it that message

If your computer is constantly attempting to shutdown
or reboot, quickly go to:

Start > Run and type: shutdown -a , and hit enter

get a firewall

update virus defenitions and windows update

Start, Run, type in
shutdown -a

and click OK - this will give you longer than a minute.
