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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
