    i am running xp pro and i was trying to run ad-aware when i got a message saying that my computer was going to shutdown. it says the system is shutting down, it was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. It also says the RPC (remote procedure call service) was terminated unexpectedly. i thought it might be a virus so i used anti-vir to check for a virus and got nada. can anyone tell me how to get rid of this??

    Sounds like either the sasser or blaster worm.

    after i tried the first program i ran ad-aware again and it seemed to be fine. so does that mean the virus is gone or should i still try this other one too...(i would try it but i am at work so i cant.)
