For those not aware of this, a new virus/worm struck yesterday and infected 
100's of thousands of machines using Windows 2000 and XP. Win 95, 98 and ME ARE 
NOT effected.
The worm exploits the DCOM RPC vulnerability and causes the PC to shut down in 
60 seconds whenever connected to the internet.

for a removal tool and instructions for doing it manually.
