RPC Shutdown

  dave h 17:29 29 Aug 03

Two of my friends have had what appears to be the same problem, and as I am the nearest thing to a PC expert they know I?ve been landed with it. As I?m not THAT expert I?ve come to the real Experts.

They are both running XP.

A ?pop-up box appears, and the gist of the message is - ?RPC service terminated unexpectedly. This shutdown was initiated by NT Authority\System?. The box has a countdown timer, counting down from 1 minute to zero, at which point the system shuts down.

Any Idea?s or solutions will be gratefully received.
