Hi,

I'm trying to fix a laptop that a friend of mine have.
When it boots up everything appears to be fine, but when the
"windows2000professional - image" is finished loading, then it reboots.
Appears to me as a virus, but don't know which. Would really appreciate
your help...

Thanx

You write that you are trying to fix the laptop. Are you trying to fix the
problem that you describe, or is that a separate problem? Do you get a blue
screen before the reboot? By any chance, is the copy of Windows 2000 an
evaluation copy? As for virus hunting, odds are that any virus is a recent
virus, with Sasser being the most suspect for the behavior you describe.
