I recently installed Win2000 in my computer, and I was in
the process of reinstalling utilities in advance of
installing programs.
The first irrecularity happen after installing Norton
Antivirus, when I was notified by Norton of having the
virus 'W32.spybot.Worm' encountered in the object named and
locatated in <c:\WINNT\system32\TFTP1344> which was deleted
by Norton.
This happened twice, the second time it refered to TFTP1392.

After that, when I tried running a full scan, my system
started shutting down on its own. It has happen several
times, to the point that I can not keep installing.
The following is the complete messaje I am getting:

"This system is shutting down. Please save all work in
process and log off. Any unsaved changes will b lost. This
shutdown was initiate by NT AUTHORITY SYSTEM.
Message: The system process 'c:\WINNT\system32\Isass.exe'
terminated unexpectedly with status code 128. The system
will now shutdown and restart"

Then it gives me one minute to close. When it restarts it
repeats itself.... What is going on?

Are the files deleted by Norton responsible for this? And
if so, is there a way of fixing this problem?

The message appered iniciaty when I started to conduct a
full scan, but after disconnecting from the web and after
successfully conducting a full scan, the message appeared
again when I was trying to install other utilities, and
thereafter, just appeared anyway!! :-(

Can somebody help??? I will truly apprecite it! Thanks in
advance.

For any new install it is imperative that you install these before
connecting to any network or you'll be almost immediately infected.

Thanks Dave, for responding.

And while I save the downloads to a disk and read the
information, I have a couple of questions to ask you.

Related to the virus:
- Do you think that the problem is that a virus still in my
computer? Even after running a full scan and finding
nothing?...

- The files that were deleted by Norton (TFTP1344 and
TFTP1392)... do they need to be replaced in the system?
Norton has kept these files as a 'backup' [having deleted
the infected ones -I think]. And if that is the case, can
I reinstall those files from my 'backup' ERD disk?

Related to the patches:
- Installing these patches in the system should solve the
problem? Or would I need to reinstall from ERD date data
and then run the patches before re-installing again
utilities and Norten antivirus. At this time I have not
data or major programs installed.

- Also, is there a special method for installing patches?
or it is kind of 'wizard' follow-me-through kind of install?

Sorry if I sound so novice... I guess I'am. :-)
Thanks for your help.

Hello Dave, and thanks again.

I have installed the patches and the installation, as you
mentioned, went trouble-free! :) 

I have installed the patches, and the system seem to be
running well, although I have not reconnected yet to the
web.

Now, I'm thinking in following your suggestion of
reinstalling again. My next questions would be, would it
be sufficient to re-install ONLY MS2000k to the partition
I have reserved for the OS?, or do I have to do a 'Clean
Install' and start from scratch deleting all the
partitions I have created and the small programs/
utilities I have already installed?

I suppose that if I were to install only MS2000, I will
reinstall the patches again after the reinstallation and
in advance of connecting to the net and asking my
AntiVirus to get an updated of virus defintions... Would
that be the sequence?

Is there anything else I must do to prevent being
infected before my antivirus protection is fully in place?

Thanks for your continued help!
Rocio

If it were I, then I would start a new install, then before connecting to
any network install the latest service pack, then the patches I listed.

Dave, thanks for your response. However, I still a bit
confused about what a 'clean install' entitles.

If I depart from the learned knowledge that the advantage
of having a system partitioned, and having the OS in one
of those partitions is that in case of something bad
happening (like in this case), you can re-install the OS
in the partitioned space. Then, from this perspective,
a 'clean install' would be to install the OS in that
partition, leaving other existing partitions as they are.

Or, are you saying, with your recomendation that I should
reintall to a clean hardrive? And redu the partitions
before installing software and so.

At this time, I have already the SP4 and the patches in a
CD, and I will follow your recommendation to install them
before connecting to the net next time.

I also got and followed the instructions of Northern/
Symantec to remove the '32.spybot.worm' from my system,
but it didn't find any traces of it in the registry or in
Start up.

So at this point I think I need to reinstall, however, I
might be better of if I wait for clarification from you
on what process to follow regarding the 'clean install'.
Thanks again.

Rocio

To do a clean install, either boot the Windows 2000 install CD-Rom or setup
disks. The set of four install disks can be created from your Windows 2000
CD-Rom; change to the \bootdisk directory on the CD-Rom and execute
makeboot.exe (from dos) or makebt32.exe (from 32 bit) and follow the
prompts.

When you get to the point, delete the existing NTFS and or other partitions
found. After you delete the partition(s) abort the install, then again
restart the pc booting the CD-Rom or setup disks to avoid unexpected drive
letter assignments with your new install.

Thanks again Dave for your replay, and I hope this will
be the last one of a long steam that seems to have
changed subject on the way.

I just want to recap my understanding before proceeding,
just to make sure I won't mess it up.

As a bacground info, let me tell you the existing
structure of the partitions I have now on a 120GB
hardrive (they are all NTFS file systems):

C = OS 15GB where I have installed MS2000Pro
(inside the 'C' folder, I have MOUNTED a primary
partition containing my Progrmas, in a folder called
other than 'Program Files' so it sits mounted on 'C'
without a drive letter assignment)

D = DVD drive
E = CD drive

The following are part of an extended partition, and
setup as a logical drives
F = Data
G = Images
H = To Backup
I = downloads

There is also some unpartitioned space.

So, as you mention, the reasigning of letters will be an
undesirable outcome.

If I understand what you are saying, with the Program CD,
I run it to make an install, then when I get to the point
of WHERE to install it (WHERE IT SHOWS THE DIFFERENT
PARTITIONS, choose DRIVE C, I suppose at that point it
will ask me if I want to delete everything in it, and I
say YES, then just after that I abort the install (I
guess by using 'escape' if there is not other visible
option to abort).

Then, when I re-start again with the CD to install and I
do the installation to the C drive, right?

What is the difference of doing the 'abort' move, to just
ask to do the installation to the C drive and continue
the install? I suppose it would be that the MOUNTED
PARTITION will take a drive letter assignment changing
all others?

Or is that also a possibility doing the 'abort' move?

Waiting for your comments, I thank you again for your
assistance and patience.

Rocio

BTY, I ran the removing tool for the Sasser worm, and the
system didn't identify anything, but even after I
installed all patches, and service pack4, I continue to
receive notices from my AV about deletions of new
incoming 'W32.Spybot.worm' infected files. (I also ran
follow the instructions to remove the 'spybot worm' with
nothing being identified). Go figure! I'm now reading
how to install a firewall...

Ok in this case forget the above.

To do a clean install, either boot the Windows 2000 install CD-Rom or setup
disks. The set of four install disks can be created from your Windows 2000
CD-Rom; change to the \bootdisk directory on the CD-Rom and execute
makeboot.exe (from dos) or makebt32.exe (from 32 bit) and follow the
prompts.

When you get to the point, format the existing system partition (C:\) and
continue the install.

Ok, Dave... that seems easier to do! Fiuuu!!!

I will do that in the next day or so, and reinstall all of
the patches, service pack and updates, and then I will
just let a note with the ending results to close the long
query with some type of outcome for future readers.

Thanks again for all your help! :)

What concluded.
I decided to reinstall MS2k to a different partition and
left the original install untoched in 'C'. This was in
part because I could not 'repair' the install as I was
trying to install a program version which contained
Service Pk 3 on top of a program which had already
upgraded to Service Pk4. Therefore a 'clean' new install
needed to be done.

I choose to do install a second version of the same OS, in
a larger partition (thinking that it would hold also the
system and boot option, which at the end did not).

I was able to later, expand the size of my original OS to
hold the space I had originally setup for programs on a
mounted partition originally mounated on C.

That has created some other problems... hanging around in
other postings... in other words...those are a different
story...

Thanks to all for your help! :)
