    So I figured out I was infected with the blaster virus. I
    downloaded the steps to remove this from my computer. I
    began the removal steps and my computer suddenly turned
    off. It now continually turns off and on when I try to
    boot it. I get to the "Starting Windows 2000" page and
    then it restarts.

    I take it my computer is completely overrun with the
    virus. Is it fixable?

    The Blaster virus infects the RPC (Remote Procedure Call)
    component of Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Windows is
    receiving the restart command via RPC from the Internet.
    What you need to do is disconnect your computer from the
    internet to stop the endless restart cycle. Then you will
    need to obtain the RPC patch and apply it to your system
    while not connected to the Internet. If you have another
    computer that is running Windows 98 or NT 4 or perhaps a
    friend could download the file for you. It is small
    enough to fit on a floppy disk so getting it to your
    computer shouldn't be too diffcult. The following url
    should take you to Microsoft's download page to obtain
    the patch:

    Good Luck
