I recently just rid myself of the 2012 XP Internet Security virus, and didn't have any problems.

Then I ran Google chrome and after a minute it crashed, and now repeatedly crashes. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, same instances occurred.

My auto updater is currently turned off, and it wont let me turn it on. And I know I need patches to help fix the situation if I do have the worm.

I randomly receive the NT/ Authority System Shutdown. A guide told me to do the following:

" Locate one of the following programs (depending on variation), click on it and End Task or End Process

any process running with the "_up.exe" suffix"

But none of these things showed up in my task manager. It also tells me to:
"run>regedit and search HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Current Version>Run"
I followed these instructions just to see if I would see any of the files in the registry and I did not.
(as it told me to delete the avserve, skynetave, and _up suffix executable files)

I decided to run the symantec removal tool just as out of sheer randomness. And after it did its search it found 0 variations of this Worm.. I don't see any evidence of the worm being on my computer but, I will still receive the NT/ Authority System Shutdown error.
