<--- Go here for the latest stinger from mcafee. This will scan your pc for the latest viruses including msblast/nachi sobig etc..


http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/default.asp
<--- Go here for the patch for msblaster. This will patch the security flaw so that the blaster worm or any other worms exploiting that flaw can no longer infect your pc.

Also if your pc keeps rebooting before you can do any of this go to your internet connection advanced tab and turn on the firewall.

Also click start-> run-> type in command and at the prompt if your pc starts to reboot you can type in shutdown -a this will stop your shutdown command.

Let me know if this helps..
