XP crashing -RPC service termination on Evesham PC

  ZootHornRollo 09:35 12 Feb 2004

I had to reinstall XP yesterday as my system was running incredibly slowly and Evesham advised that this was (after trying a few other options that didn't work) the only course of action available.
So I reloaded XP and all my hardware and everything was as it should be except that within two mins of accessing the net via my Broadband connection a message appeared saying the system was closing down in one minute. The message stated that the shutdown was initiated by "NT AUTHORITY \ SYSTEM" and went on to say that windows had to "restart because the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly". This happened everytime within a few mins of accessing the net but when not connected the PC was fine.
What is this problem and how do I fix it? Evesham helpline is permanently engaged so if anyone can help I'd really appreaciate it

you have the blaster worm. to fix it you need a patch fir windows and a fix. both of which can be got from symantecs website. make sure you install the windows patch first
