My computer is repeatedly restarting because some remote server (probably in Young America, Minnesota) keeps shutting down unexpectedly. What can I do to stop this? And big ups to all the weiners in Young America...oh, crap! Happening! HELP!!!



Sometimes I ask myself why I watch WWE after all the crap it's given me. HLA, necro, HHH, and so on. And then it hits me. That one simple phrase that can be modified and used for anything that gets you down, yet makes you keep coming back.

Every episode has the potential to be the best one ever, and I'll be damned if I'm going to miss it after sitting through this shit.

I'm confused as to why a remote server shutting down should be affecting your computer? But anyway, the next time your computer is online, check to make sure it isn't the MSBlast virus, as it can make your computer repeatedly shut down. Info on msblast is here. (securityresponse.symantec.com)

If it is msblast, here's an excerpt that should help you keep your computer alive long enough to remove the virus.

Restarting the computer in Safe mode or ending the Worm process
Windows 95/98/Me
Restart the computer in Safe mode. All the Windows 32-bit operating systems, except for Windows NT, can be restarted in Safe mode. For instructions on how to do this, read the document, "How to start the computer in Safe Mode."

Windows NT/2000/XP
To end the Trojan process:
Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete once.
Click Task Manager.
Click the Processes tab.
Double-click the Image Name column header to alphabetically sort the processes.
Scroll through the list and look for msblast.exe.
If you find the file, click it, and then click End Process.
Exit the Task Manager.

Well dammit to hell, it was the MSBlast Virus, and while Norton keeps telling me that it won't go away, its effects have, so as far as I know (or care to), it's gone and won't come back.

Did you follow all the steps on from Norton's site that I linked to? Make sure you get the thing out of your registry, or it will try and get you again. And as long as Norton (or whatever virus checker you have) says the actual program file is quarantined, but that you can't get rid of it, that's good enough.

Happy to be of service. Actually, you should thank Penny-Arcade, seeing as how I just heard of this virus today when their computers got hit with it.

The Wienerboard collective brain is brilliant! I've got it too, although I'm getting a different symptom (svchost.exe crashing mostly).

Thanks so much for the information!!

I had a colleague who had the same problem today. He had the "svchost crashes" instead of the"reboot the system when accessing the Internet symptoms", and it took a while to solve the problem, but I had him install the Microsoft patch and everything went back to normal.

Thank god for Windows 98 SE :)
