Help with virus on 2000 machine

Guest

Is there an application that i can run on a 2000 machine that shows me what
patches are needed? Mind you, these servers have no access to the internet.
I'm having an issue with a virus that i can't get rid of and i think it's
because these systems haven't been patched in a long time.

FYI about virus - Risk: "Downloader" in File: C:\WINNT\system32\i

My antivirus is successfully catching and deleting it but it reoccurs
everytime a scan is performed. Also, it's now starting to shutdown by itself
with that system shutdown window that states:

This system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log off.
Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown was initiated by NT
AUTHORITY/SYSTEM. The system process 'C:\WINNT\system32\services.exe'
terminated unexpectedly with status code 128. The system will now shut down
and restart.

Any help how to resolve this is very much appreciated!

That line is incomplete...

What comes after; C:\WINNT\system32\i ?

Complete information is needed for the next step.
This includes what anti virus software is indicating "Downloader" which, by the way, is a
Trojan and NOT a virus.

That's exactly how it looks in the window. That threw me off as well as it
did not have an extension usually an .exe.
