    My oldest son just graced me with the computer of his finance'. With lots of applications and the Windows 2000 Professional operating system, it would be great if it did not shut down soon after turning it on.

    They bought a bundled computer at Costco and claim they never had any operating system discs.

    Is there anything I can do to help mend this thing so that it will stay on and remain stable?

    If you can stay on-line long enough, please do this. Click here:

    http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

    Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the log and advise.

    If you're having trouble staying on-line long enough, probably due to a virus like Sasser, you can abort the shutdown by doing this:

    To stop the computer from shutting down, go to Start - Run - and type in
    "shutdown /a" (no quotes)

    I think the command is, shutdown -a, the other may work for all I know but if it doesn't try mine :)
