Hello Dumb1

I think to stop Blaster worm you will need to enable the Win XP firewall (I am not running win xp so I cant tell you how to do this) & make sure his computer is up to date with all the windows update patches, if you are not too sure about any of them post back here & we can tell you what he need & not need.

Tried all that.I am on a scale of 1-10 in puter sense about a 8 but
he is about a 2
