I am having the following system issues. At first glance, it appearrs that my PC is infected with the msblast worm. However, none of the standard remedies have removed the isues I am experiencing. Any ideas? I have noted errors and issues below.
Services error: (discovered when I was trying to verify wibows firewall was working)
Could not start Security Center Service on Local Computer
Error 1899: The endpoint mapper Database entyry could not be created
Windows Shut down: (right after a restart this appears)
Shutdown Initiated by NT Authority\System- RPC services terminated unexpectedly;
System will shutdown in XX seconds
1.) Have rolled back to prior system configuration: back to SP2 from SP3
Seemed to work for a while, then uninstalled some IDE/SATA card drivers
and got shudown message again
2.) Other problems include Windows Explorer freezing, MS services not loading,
copy/paste/move does not work, recycle bin un-responsive.
3.) Have tried several steps to remove the Blaster worm- Ran AVG in Safe mode,
Ran the Symantec tool on primary drive, tried another tool from safe mode.
4.) SYSTEM IS NOT currently connected to the net, however, I can download and transfer
any tools from another working PC with flash drive.
5.) This issue appears to be associated with a specific user profile. The administrator
profile does not appear to have the problem.
