Sounds like the blaster worm I had a few months ago. I had to download a "patch" from Microsoft....

Did you run a virus scanner?

Removal Tool Removal Tool Two of about a billion removal tools that will remove the Sasser worm, one from Symantec, one from Microsoft themselves. You'll only need to use one of them. Patch Apply this patch and install a decent firewall (ZoneAlarm is a common choice, there are others of course) to secure your PC. That should prevent the Sasser worm entering your computer. If the dialog saying that it will shut down in x seconds comes up, press windows key + r and type 'Shutdown -a' (sans quotes) and it SHOULD stop the shutdown process (I didn't get the Sasser worm so I can only assume for that part). Hope that helps
