  1. hey there again..i have another problem AGAIN..tis about a PC shutting down just after it started..once the desktop shows, it has a message telling the system is shutting down..i tried using safe mode same result.

    i cant troubleshoot the PC since i cant do a thing about it..the systems shuts down immediately...what kind of nasty freak is doing this? i cant even identify what virus it is since i see nada >.<

    thanks for the rep! :)

    Sounds so much like the blaster virus, there is a fix on the web, you will need to start in safe mode and run the fix from there.

    Do you have a Windows install disk?

    Can you tell us what Windows it is?

    Can you post some specs anytime in the foreseeable future?

    You never answered whether you had the XP disks - if you do, try a Repair Install and then get into Safe Mode and delkete everything you don't need and then run some AV programs.
