My mates got a laptop which has Xp and I think he's got a virus cos everytime he logs onto the internet he gets a wraning saying that his machine will close in 60 secs, then it does the count down and closes.
I remember a while ago there was a huge virus that did this to alot of PC's. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I think there's removal tool on the Microsoft site.

OK, but how does he do that if he's only got 1 minute of Net time, before he gets kicked off????
Or could i just create a data CD on my PC?
