  2. Ike;
    DISCONNECT the subject computer from any network IMMEDIATELY.

    If necessary to stop the reboot process:
    Start/Run
    Type "shutdown -a" ENTER

    Install or enable a firewall IMMEDIATELY, before connecting to the
    internet:

    VERY IMPORTANT to follow ALL steps, closing ports or installing the
    patch is NOT enough.
    Download the patch and regedit referenced in the article below.
    You may need to do this at an uninfected computer and burn to CD or
    save on floppies.
    Each file is small enough to fit on a floppy.

    Follow this to clean and protect your computer:

    After this is resolved prevent similar occurrences by installing ALL
    Critical Updates from Windows Update.
    Keep antivirus up to date and run at least weekly.
    Install or enable a firewall.
