    If you don't get online, then your computer won't shutdown. So make sure you do NOT get online when you install the patch.

    You can stop the error message by typing this. Click on Start / Run and type shutdown -a

    This will disable Windows' ability to shutdown.

    Simalar problem but not exactly

    Have recently seen the same issue come up on about 20 workstations. I was wondering about the KB Article / Patch you are referencing?

    There was an article I read (318447) that read "SERVICES.EXE Terminated Unexpectedly with Status Code 128" Error Message When You Start Windows 2000".

    My systems for the most part are XP. I haven't been able to isolate what the cause is for sure but the following outline what I know. Should not be virus or our scanners would have caught it comming in or workstations would have. The major change was Active Directory migration from NT domain. I had varying luck stabalizing the systems. Some wouldn't let you in far enough to execute the run statement above. When I was able to get in the cause as far as I could find was several printer shares that were no longer accessable. After the migration no file or print shares made it intact. They showed as being there but were not functional. Removing them from the registry resolved the issue.

    Just a little side information not knowing the whole story behind your system.

    In truth, best practice is to salvage your data and reload. I use norton ghost to dump an image then extract data back from the image using Ghost explorer.

    Good luck.

    Blaster Worm Patch

    I had the same problem. You need to install the following patch, from Microsoft web site (see what language works for you. Mine is English).
    Good Luck

    NT Authority shutdown...

    Isn't this was just a message via the internal windows messenger service that remotely shuts down the computer (sent by a machine acting as administrator)? You can go to services (in administration ->services) and disable the messenger service.

    This is nothing to do with windows messenger by the way.

    Hope this helps.
