Ok, on occasion when my computer shuts down by itself. I get a box on my screen that says the following: (And there is no way to stop it from shutting down)

"This system is shutting down, please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shut down was initiated by NT Authority/System."

Time before shutdown: (I have 60 seconds)

"The system process c:/windows/sys32/lsass.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code 128. The system will now shutdown and restart."

Any ideas?!

NOTE: I do not get this little box on my screen EVERY time it decides to re-start on its own, just occasionally. Sometimes it will re-start without showing me this box.

This could be the Sasser worm. Download and run this utility called Stinger to remove it: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/

Then, go to at least 2 or 3 of these free, online scans and scan your system for problems. Only do 1 if you're on dialup because they take so long! Then post back with the results.

The Sasser worm and the lsass vulnerability are, if I remember correctly, caused by an unpatched version of XP being used. I'd suggest that you visit Windows Update and ensure that you've downloaded all the patches and service packs. Please let us know if you have SP2 and the latest updates.

This isn't necessarily your case - but we've got to rule out the worm before moving on!
