Hi Guys,

This new version of Sdbot is easy to deal with if you are there but most of my users are remote. In XP if the NT Authority created a sixty second auto shutdown you could simply type Shutdown -A at a command prompt.

Windows 2000 does not have this feature. A few years back during the internet Blaster and My Doom wars I had found in MS Tech help a command phrase you could type in at a command prompt that if I remember correctly created a logfile that somehow stopped the auto shutdown so you could have time to patch and then fix.

My question, Does anyone remember what that was?

My most undying gratitude to you! :wave:

Moving this to the forum 'Virus and Trojan Removal and Prevention Methods' where it will get you more visibility.
Hope is not a method.
