That's a classic symptom of infection by the Blaster worm. We need you to tell us details about your computer including CPU type, RAM capacity, hard drive size, what version of windows, what anti-virus or anti-spyware you have and some details about your applications.
If the infection is serious you may need to seek expert help in the HJT forum. If that is necessary then please read the 'Preparation Guide'
before posting to:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/Hij...alysis-f22.html
For now you can stop the system from rebooting by clicking Start>run and typing shutdown -a
. That should give you time to download and run the programs I'll list below:
Download the Trend Micro system cleaner from here:Trend Micro System Cleaner
Printout the readme.txt file for specific instructions on how to run this utility.
Physically disconnect from the internet when told to shutdown anti-virus software.
Download McAfee AVERT Stinger utility and see instructions for use, from here:Stinger
Is your Anti-virus
program current and updated
? If not you can download a free anti-virus program here (US Link): AVG Free
When you have downloaded and installed it you need to go online to register it and update it. (It will probably prompt you to do this.)
Once you have installed AVG uninstall your old Anti-Virus software because you should only have one running on your system.
Do you have any anti-spyware
installed? If not download and update all
of the following:Reboot your computer in Safe Mode
and run Stinger, the anti-virus scan and anti-spyware scans there.
If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here: Safe Mode
Make a note of what you download as you should inform the HJT team if you end up going there.
Let us know what happens.
