When or if you get the shutdown message...
Go to; Start --> Run
enter; shutdown -a
This will halt the shutdown and give you a chance to Download the McAfee worm removal tool,
Stinger: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/ or the Microsoft Lovsan/Blaster and Nachi/Welchia
and install the following patch for the RPC/RPCSS Buffer Overflow Vulnerability that is
addressed by Microsoft Security Bulletin MS03-39 http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=824146
Please read: http://www.microsoft.com/security/incident/blast.asp
You also need a FireWall. If you don't patch the PC and not use a FireWall then you will
just be re-infected.
I also suggest the installation of *ALL* MS Critical Updates ASAP.
