Now my computer will restart randomly after an unclosable error message popping up saying'this computer will restart...' something that I forgot and I suspect it`s the effect of the sasser worm...HELP!!
lol:lol: go to microsoft or get a virus scan and remoal program. If you can do those dump the entire hd but try to save any files you want to keep:D
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
hey thanks man! it really helped :) at least, i'm pretty sure that it did hehe. i'm gonna feed u regardless of the "Don't Feed The Sheep" sign :lol:. not that i've seen 1... Wait, what do sheeps eat? :p
Install security update 835732 on the Windows Update Web site listed in the Critical Updates and Service Packs section.
to stop the shutdown type /shutdown -a in run its the same method used when the blaster worm was around
