This sounds like the Blaster worm. You need to source anti virus software and clean all the machines. It would be best to disconnect them from the network first - check for more details from Microsoft:

You can get a removal tool for example from F-Secure:
and their removal tool

or Symantec:

Possibility of three viruses/worms if that is problem. Blaster, Welchia, or Sasser. Update your Server @ and all your XP machines...If you get the error while getting the updates then go to Start>run>shutdown -a within the 60 secs. and you will be able to cancel the shutdown...Get a AV (I recommend CA eTrust AV) update, and run scans on all your machines with system restore off and in safe mode.
Post back with more info as far as AV and updates are concerned!
