    I'd be quite interested to learn the exact method of infection:?:

    im hearing all sorts of things that this virus does:

    from internet connections that disconnect every 60secs, from shutdowns in 60secs, to the worm attacks windowsupdate.com from a infected computer.

    looks like the 60sec shutdown is the prominent symtom.

    yup 60sec shut-down - hence the need to reinstall to start-up.
    I got infected via the service provider as everyone is being hit - one mate even pulled out his phone when he caught it trying to download itself onto his puter!:eek:

    One of my clients had the 60 sec shut down but I was able to stop that by disconnecting their DSL line. It was like a DoS attack on port 135. Once I did that I was able to install and run a virus removal tool, patch their windows and update their Norton.

    Full scan cleaned up the rest of the junk and they are good to go now.

    Although much more aware of the need to keep their computer updated!!! :hammer:

    The 60 second restart seems to be from internet traffic scanning port 135. If you disconnect from the internet you should be able to boot up but the computer runs VERY slowly until you get rid of the virus.
