These are in the same place?
You say tree minutes, then you can make any other thing.
The blaster viruses do something like.
the cpu?s, send a message the system shutdown in any time?

This may sound like a dumb question, but is there a lot of static electricity surrounding you? Maybe you have a lot of spark? If you have all the virus protection going, and have all your virus updates, and windows updates, it's unlikely to be a virus. Does sound kinda freaky though. Maybe just a fluke. Run a thorough virus scan on all of them just to be sure, though. The symantic website has blaster virus removal tools (assuming you are running Norton's). I think Norton's the best. Good luck. Bev

Hi. It's me again. I am really curious as to what is going on. Have you tried working on them again since the last time, when they all shut down, one after the other? You know sometimes if you just re-boot it cures a lot of things. Stranger things have happened. When it comes to computers, they do what they want, when they want, whatever they want. You know that, I'm sure.
I'd like to know the outcome. Please email me or respond at this site. Thanks. Bev
