Getting An Error In Windows XP When my friend connect to The Internet

Hello My Friend had to got to Cali for his moms operation.

His Laptop gives him an error when he connects to the Internet= It says RCP error Your computer will automatically restart in 30 seconds. It only does this when he trys to connect to the internet though. He has Norton Antivirus and has the latest virus update but it finds no viruses or anything wrong. What is making the computer restart on connection to the net?

Please any help would be of great value to him in his time of need for his mom is not in good condition. He needs to send some info to his professor. He also just told me that it done the same thing when he opened Wordpad.

Hi 122275,

The RPC error could be due to either the MSBlaster worm or the newer Sasser worm. Further information is available at these sites:
