    The "NT Authority" message is from windows and it is shutting down because
    it is an unpatched OS and something is trying to exploit the RPC vulnerability
    in Windows.
    You probably are infected by the blaster virus. There is a fix tool
    from Symantec for blaster.

    You need to
    1)run the fix tool,
    2)Run Windows update
    3)run live update in Symantec/Norton to get the latest virus definitions.
