    Ok, I'm working on my nephews computer, and it keeps shutting down after I try and install Microsoft updates. It give me a count down and then after the 60 second countdown it reboots. What is causing this and how do I fix it?

    Thanks in Advance
    Mike

    P.S What happened to the old forum?

    Old Forums gone, all queries directed at the brick wall *points* (or check the news/announcements section of the forums ;))

    To stop the machine from shutting down, open up the run dialog and type "shutdown -a" sans quotes. Then head over to your local WindowsUpdate and grab everything you can, but most importantly the RPC patch :)

    Ok Speedy I did that. It opened up a black window for a few seconds, then it went away. Is that what it's suppost to do? Thank you very much by the way :)

    you got struck by the blaster worm. MS has patch for it, so go get it. and no its not a virus and thus not picked up by antivirus scanners, but symantec and mcafee has special tools to remove it and adaware can do it 2
