    Stop Blaster Countdown/Remove Blaster Tools (Win XP Pro SP1)

    A number of people are asking how to keep Windows from shutting down and restarting because of Blaster so they can go to the antivirus sites to use the instructions to get it off. Blaster doesn't want you to be able to stay up long enough to do this, but you can:

    How To Stop the Blaster Countdown and Stay in Windows to get Removal Tools to Boot It

    Go to the command line interface by clicking on the Start button and selecting Run. Type "command" (without quotes) and click OK.

    At the command prompt, type "shutdown -a" (without quotes). This effectively orders the computer to abort shutdown.

    Run your antivirus tools and download patches to remove the worm.
