since then i havent had any issues except for this dreaded little window that pops up being on desktop for a couple minutes talking about computer must shut down nt authority/ system and a countdown in the bottom part of the little window pop up starts counting down, sometimes i am able to end task, but others times no chance of that . and ive searched and ive ran the program "w32.blaster. worm removal tool. from symantec", and it discovered no worm , so i did what was in the next step which was to run the "removal tool from symantec w .32 blaster." in safe mode following how to do the safe mode as indicated, and after i ran it it again said there was no worm, after that i changed it back to reboot to normal mode. and as i did that right now i havent seen the little window pop up saying computer must shut down nt authority/system but i wanted to know if it can still be there and if it would show up next time i start the computer . and also i downloaded the blaster worm : critical security patch for windows xp and it said that the patch would only work for a system that didnt have any service pack. and i have an
hp media center m1070n pentium 4 service pack 3
also i believe i might of had the dreaded windows xp recovery that fake computer analysis as i remember exactly before my computer shut it self down and restarted it said this
Hard Drive Failure
"The system has detected a problem with one or more installed IDE / SATA hard disks. It is recommended that you restart the system."
p.s. also i am sure it must be this or the dreaded mcafee code that was sent to many computers , and caused many computers to have that window pop up saying computer must shut down and countdown starts .
please reply as soon as possible thank you ,
and i am aware that you guys are busy, please help out as best possible thank you
