haha anther instance of the Blaster virus. go to Start->Run->cmd and then type shutdown -a and press Enter when it happens.

then go download the removal patch from here: http://securityresponse.symantec.com...oval.tool.html

and go to Windows Update (usually under Start->Windows Update) and download latest critical patches.

next time you reinstall XP or 2000, don't connect to Internet right away and apply patches if you have them saved.

theabove site will give you more info

yes, i would agree. that is good advice. a good firewall or router with anti-virus software can protect you from this also.

it doesn't mean that he has the msblast virus,but a good chance.
the RPC restarting started before the msblast came out.

i fixed someones computer that was messed up.
in task manager i killed msblast,mslaugh,treekids,and LSAS(not lsass)then deleted the startup files in regedit.
did a adware and virus scan,installed a firewall,then windows update.

the RPC has something to do with someone sending a file to your computer and having it connect to an irc server,but it is the same way the msblast was sent.

What option did you take and why did you decide to say yes ?
I didn't
Why where you there ?
What where you expecting ?
You screwed up i think,and paid the price.
