Knowing that there are several IT specialists here I'm hoping for some answers.
I've got a little problem with the computer virus which has been on the news over the past couple of days. Nothing really nasty, but about 5 minutes after you log on, a window pops us saying that your system will reboot in one minute.
There is a patch for this on the Windows Update site. But on the infected PC, it has an old-fashioned analog modem and there is no time to download the patch before the reboot happens.
I have 2 PCs at home - the one that I am using now, which is constantly updated and has all the patches, and the other one which is infected, which only gets used occasionally.
My question: Is there a way I can download the patch on this computer, put it on a CD-ROM, and run it on the other PC? I expect this will take a whole lot less time and would allow the patch to slip in before the reboot happens.

Lovsan loves you.
Ok here we go:
As soon as the window "Windows is gonna shut down in XX seconds" pops up, click on Start, then Run (Don't know the exact English names.), type "shutdown -a" and click on OK. Now your computer won't shutdown.
