I am in great need of help! After formatting ny HD a couple weeks ago (actually I formatted only the Windows XP Partition) i am experiencing some very annoying behaviour from the notorious NT Authority. The story is identical as the W32 worm behaviour, except there is not any variation of either the blaster nor the sasser worm, or any other of the W32 family. I have Norton INternet Security up-to-date, I disabled system restore, ran both the fixblast and the stinger tools in safe mode, i scanned all the partitions and the hidden-compressed-system files, and there is not any virus presence. There is something else too. While i get online, and as long as i manage to stay, the C.P.U. temperature rises to almost 60 degrees Celsius. That is the more annoying part of the problem, since my cooling programm crashes after i disconnect. I thought it was some modem malfunction, but the same modem works fine at the same system under Windows 98SE. Any help will be greatly appreciated, since i am running out of ideas! Thank you all in advance, and sorry for the rather large post!
