Shutting down computer

  Dick W 11:44 15 Jun 04

My sister's laptop (Evesham) working on XP home keeps on shutting down when in line. The message is "This system is shutting down - NT AUTHORITY SYSTEM - Error code windows\system32\isass.exe Status code -1073741819
McAfee virus scan is up to date but I feelthat this is the sasser worm. Have also tried Spybot and all well there.
Please help! She also gets "adult" messenger popups - can these be cleared as well.

To turn off the Mesenger Service to stop the Messenger ads, run "ShootTheMessenger" which you can download if you click here

Any other ideas - thanks for your help so far...
