    VIRUS???

    My grandaughter's puter, with ME won't let her on for more than a minute...a box comes up saying that Windows will shut down in 60 seconds????Can't do anything before if closes. Is this a virus or what.

    It sure does sound like a virus. I'm not sure which one, this sounds a lot like the Blaster worm but that did not affect Windows ME systems. You will need to get an updated virus tool, and start the computer in Safe Mode. Symantec has excellent instructions on this page that detail steps for one particular virus, but the steps to removed it apply to many evil pieces of code that are around.

    Good luck with this, and keep us posted. Ask any questions that you need to get rid of the nasty.
