    My daughter has a laptop computer, which, out of the blue, tonight has been giving her the SYSTEM SHUTDOWN message every time she tries to go on the internet .... then it says close all applications, and a countdown of 1 minute starts , after which time the whole thing goes into restart ?????? What on earth is it? She really needs internet conection , as she has an Autistic youngster, and her therapist lives in Georgia, America.
    Can anyone please help with a diagnosis .... and if possible a cure.
    Thanks,
    Gwyneth

    That is the W32.Blaster.Worm. that hit much of the internet the last couple of days.

    See the following link for instructions on fixing it:
