This question was answered on October 25, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

The error you have encountered is a symptom of the MSBlast worm (also known as the W32.Blaster.Worm), which has been around for a while To resolve this error, you first need to use the command "shutdown -a" to stop the system from shutting down so that you cant patch the computer and remove the virus Next, download and install the patch, which is available on the Microsoft's web site.

To remove running versions of the virus from your PC, open Task Manager, select the Processes tab, then click End Process for all the following processes:

- MSBLAST.EXE

- PENIS32.EXE

- TEEKIDS.EXE

- MSPATCH.EXE

- MSLAUGH.EXE

- ENBIEI.EXE

To prevent the virus from starting again, perform the following steps:

Start a registry editor (e.g., regedit.exe).

Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry subkey.

Remove any value that mentions any of the executables listed above.

Close the registry editor.

Open Windows Explorer, search your Windows folder for any of the executables listed above, then remove those files.

If you are running Windows XP, enable the Internet Connection Firewall(ICF) and use Windows Update to keep your system up-to-date.

An automated virus removal tool that replaces the steps above is available at the Symantec Web site (If you use this tool, you will still need to download and install the patch from the Microsoft Web site).
