That sounds like the blaster worm. Anyone else agree?

Hello

You've got the Blasterworm,

I found a link to get the patch too download to stop this worm and to be back as normal..

http://www.microsoft.com/security/incident/blast.asp

That page should tell you everything about it.
If the NT Autority thing pop's up do the following:

1)Start, Run
2) Type: shutdown -a

That shall stop that for the time being.

Hope this helps.

i have a pretty good idea that this worm comes in thru IE not sure about that but i have dealt with atleast 7 instances of this worm 2 of which freshly reformated and got infrected within ten minutes.

After this worm you might want to get a good firewall and AV program cuz there pretty much a must now a days. The internet has become a scary unsafe place.

Not sure why but i have seen cases were the updates that fix windows have slowed the comp down significantly anyone have any ideas as too why?
