2: initiated by NT authority system

you have the blaster virus.

go to and look up information on how to clean it, basically you'll have to either use the "shutdown -a" command to abort the system shut down, or turn off DCOM on the computer, then update your antivirus program completely, download all windows updates from, and do a full virus scan on your computer.

next time, keep your computer up to date.

Thanks, wasn't my computer, and felt like being lazy by asking here. Poster rated this answer.
