Hi surinder150270,

Looks like the blaster virus:

Yea...  I would boot into safe mode and scan your system..  (F8 at startup)    If you do not have the updated virus defintions, burn them onto a cd from another system and install them from it while in safe mode, then scan..  Make sure you also have the latest patches from MS too...

I believe I fully answered this question http:#10686815 , all symptoms point to the Blaster virus.
