Sounds like u have the sasser/blaster worm.

If u have XP, use this and update Windows XP.

Go here http://vil.nai.com/VIL/STINGER/ and download / install/run Stinger.

Once u boot into windows again, go to start run and type in shutdown -a

Before u run Stinger.

Make sure you have updated your OS with all the security patches from Microsoft to help prevent future infections. You should also have a firewall enabled. What antivirus product do you use?
