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

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
