My laptop is randomly restrting itself. It comes up with a message that the remote service has unexpectedly stopped and then it gives me a countdown to save my work and then restrts the computer. It happens during any and all programs.

Thanks

You are probably infected with the Blaster worm.

You need to activate any firewall software and visit the Windows Update site, which has the instructions on the main page.

This has affected anyone who is using Windows 2000 NT or XP.
It affects all systems that have not been kept up to date with security patches issued by Microsoft.

There are many, many postings on this forum about the subject as well.
