I was setting up a brand new HP system with WinXP pro. I added user accounts and installed the basic tools like officeetc and the system rebooted and is working fine.
the problem begins here..
when i install the VPN client ,safenet softremote, it installs fine and asked me to reboot.. uite normal. But after i reboot the PC keeps rebooting after a specified time. ie; it goes thru the reboot process windows load and i give crtl+alt+del and i log on and it reboots.. then i realized that if i just left it like that without logging in it just powers off and reboots.... if i was super fast i could do much more than just log in before it reboots... that's how i realized that it's rebooting after a certain amount of time... i read around a bit and realized that the reson could be a sasser worm.... do u think i got a sasser worm from a software that my company paid for???
or it is something that the software has installed that makes the system reboot... is there a way to get rid of that?
I know it is this software that caused the problem cus afterthe first time it happened i restored the machine with the restore cd and again configured it from scratch... and the same thing happened when i installed the vpn client. so i restored it again and configured it to a point that the next thing i need to do is install the software. I'm waiting for the suggestions before i do that cus i dont want to restore the system again.
thanks a lot (in advance)
I'm new to this field and learning as i go(i'm more a network security person than a systems security). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
