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 :)

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

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
