Angry virus

I have downloaded AVG free edition virus scan. It keeps finding a virus called lovesanA. Does anyone know anything about this virus? Also, When I am on the net. I sometimes get a message from NT authority/ system. It says my computer will shut down in 60 seconds. Then It says " Windows must now shut down because the Remote Procedure call terminated unexpectedly. Can anyone help me with these problems?

This particular first started coming due to blaster virus but there are a lot more variants going around now
The best way to get rid of this virus is the Stinger utility from McAfee
Get it from
Also get the ms update from microsoft website
The update number is 823980
One disk to rule them all,
One disk to bind them,
One disk to hold the files
And in the darkness grind \'em.
