It sounds like Blaster or a variant (Worm). When scanning, are you using the most current Definitions?
If you unplug the network cable, does it still continue?

Can you give us the event number from the logs? Right-click My Computer, select Manage, and click Event Viewer then search for events logged when the error occurred. If you tell us the event number and the source we can troubleshoot this further.

Good luck

Also - if you do post these details you should reject the answer - this lets us know you have responded and we revisit the question.

Have you tried looking for a Hardware fault?

You could have a Power Supply dieing or something similar to test this out download the following

and boot from the CD you've created and attempt to run some diagnostics if it still plays up you most likely have a Hardware problem and nothing at all related to Windows. I've recently had to replace quite a large number of Power Supplies for this reason they have all been the cheap ones that are marginal by the specified ratings but when replaced with decent brand name Power Supplies the units work perfectly.

my friend I sympathize with your problem . I had a similar , even worse problem ( shut down after 2 min. of power up ) with my notebook , too. There is no virus on a newly installed machine . I did the patches of XP and the problems finished. I was advized to update my bios even . I didn't . I ran all sorts of virus checks. To recover from it all you can load Xp with the latest service pack (2) , and use an official - legal - version , if possible distributed by the maker of your computer. They add " things " in those that we don't know make the XP fully support their hardware. Good luck . XP patch numbers ? sorry I don't remeber .. do all patches that apply to you ...Let me think...was it wit 444 ending or what ...
