Apparently, your PC has suffered a major security breech and is now
infected with Malware ("The Sasser Worm") because:

1. The latest Windows XP Critical Updates have apparently not been installed......
2. The PC's firewall apparently has not been properly enabled.....
3. Out-of-date or no antivirus program has been installed......

If your computer is constantly attempting to shutdown
or reboot, quickly go to:

Start > Run and type: CMD , and hit enter.
This opens the Command Prompt window.

Then type: shutdown -a , and hit enter.

This should halt the rebooting problem.

Follow these directions to remove The Sasser Worm from your computer:
