    Hello all,

    I have just had ADSL installed and everything is great bar 1 thing.

    Every now and again i get a box up saying shutting down your pc in 50 secs which it counts down and shuts off :(

    There is no way i can stop this.

    The box read REMOTE PROCEDURE CALL time out or summit.

    Any ideas ? as its annoying me :(

    yeah, more or less. a good mate had it too. take your machine off the internet and fix it.

    when you get the shutdown message, simply do this to cancel the shutdown process:

    start -> run -> shutdown -a

    then you need to google for some instructions to find out how to remove the worm.

    //edit

    removal tools

    Update windows/virus scanner and install a firewall :)

    Let this be a lesson.

    NEVER put an unsecured/patched computer on the net.

    Get latest Windows updates/firewalls/anti-virus. And disable unneeded services etc.

    Zone alarm is an ok firewall, but you also want a decent anti-virus to protect yourself properly, particularly now ur on broadband, if you don't have some av already ofc. AVG is free and good I'm told. Norton and McAfee are also good.

    You dont actually have the virus, someone elses machine is infected and sending code to your PC to shut it down. Sheesh I thought everyone used some sort of firewall these days?
