Hey guys and Gals, I have brought home , from my firehouse, our compaq presario. It seems it had snagged the sasser virus. The internet would not do a thing. So, to make a long day short, I have re-booted sytem, installed spyware, spybot,and Norton/Symantec. Norton cleared at least 9 viruses so far including the sasser. Now, For at least 4 times every 30 minutes or so, I get a message that the system is shutting down now, save bla,bla,bla, ...NT Authority\Sytem.....RPC something ,something. I get one minute to save whatever it is I`ve been working on, . The only good thing is that it restarts right back. Finally my question....what makes it do this? Is it normal? HELP!! By the way...this is my first expierience with XP. Not as scarry as i first thought. Also..I have atttempted do download thw windows updates, but alas, can`t stay connected long enough to download. THANKS>>IN ADVANCE. ...........FLASH as I submit this Norton just cleared the WELCHIA virus.
