My system keeps shutting down and rebooting as though it has the MS Blaster virus. However, when I look for it in the task manager under running processes, msblaster.exe is not there. I am also unable to bring up the properties under Remote Procedures in order to select "take no action" What do I do now?

Neither of these threads deal with the problem I am having. I am getting a message telling me that the RPC has terminated and the computer is shutting down. It then shuts down and does the same thing over again. I have brought up the task manager and selected "new task" and typed in "shutdown -a" and that will stop it from shutting down. However, all my network connections are missing and if I try to reinstall them, the shutdown message immediately comes up again. I am also unable to go into the "sewrvices" box and select the "take no action" option. Also all my help files are missing so I cannot even take the computer back to an earlier configuration. Which if it is a virus, will not work anyway. I have booted to a utility disk and run several antivirus scans but nothing was found.

Only problem is, I cannot access the internet from the computer I am having the trouble with. It will not connect to network. It is a laptop with wifi and I am unable to get it to connect to the network, now. I did finally get it to stop shutting down, but now it won't back up to my wireless network. I am working on that.
Thanks for your reply. I am curious about the log files for hijackthis, also.

Have you tried downloading winsockfix on a floppy or usb stick and run it on the problem pc to see if it helps restore the connection?

I got it back up. It restored to an earlier time for me. Thanks for trying. I think what crashed it in the first place was a Verizon wireless card that I was attempting to install. Anyway, I got it back up. Thanks.
