Any time I insert my pendrive in the USB slot, while the device is being
installed, sasser/blaster like window pops out exept for one line which
states "The sysetm process c:\winnt\system32\services.exe...(and so on)"
And ofcourse the 1 minute countdown till shutdown begins. And this is the
only moment this happens.
I've got sp4.(win2k), norton firewall, anti-virus. However "something is
preventing me from downloading new "critical" updates for windows.
"update.exe generated errors and..."
Searched the web and news groups and found nothing helpful. Any thougths?

Although this countdown is associated with blaster and sasser worms
the real purpose is to inform the user that a critical service has
failed and the system needs to restart in order to recover it. BTW
services.exe has nothing to do with either worms. Your problem is
something else. To scan for malware anyways use sysclean_fe tool
available from the link below.
