A friend of mine has a Compac notebook that shuts down while connected to the net with the following message:

This system is shutting down, please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY/ SYSTEM.

Is this the blaster virus? If not I would appreciate some ideas. Thank you.

Sounds very much like the Blaster virus. I would get the MSBlaster patch from MS and install it.

This patch is also smaller enough to fit on a Floppy! :)

Looks about right.

One reference url I found in a 1 min search:
