•Are you sure you're not infected with the W32.Blaster.Worm?
Information on how to stop the machine from rebooting when connected can be found here:

http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/w32.blaster.worm.html

•Are you sure you're not running some kind of trojan horse that allows your attacker to reboot your system?

•Are you sure it's not a hardware rather than software related issue? Problems with bad Power Supply & bad Memory Sticks can simulate software/virus problems. Start with the easiest, try a spare memory stick / try a spare power supply.

Hope that helps.

more suggestions? sure...

•check Event Viewer,
•check Firewall Logs,
•check what ports are open and/or listening on your pc.
•Try Symantec's "Online Securyty Scan", see what comes up.

By the way, I have a friend that, same as you, he had the
W32.W.Blaster. After cleaning the virus, Norton AV is no
longer detecting any traces of the virus in his computer,
but he's still a victim of the symptoms. (Rebooting) :confused:


Also, when you said:

"..I was infected w/Blaster, but following the directions on this site I got rid of it.."

do you mean you were infected even before posting the first time? Or you got rid of the virus through the link I posted. I'm just wondering, I need to know if that link is of any help at all.

I'll appreciate your reply
