on Google but the only reference to msblast ( anything ) is a member of a photographic site. For what it is worth, I run XP Home and it is not on my system. Sorry I cannot help further.

I think I may have this problem, could it be a virus? A friend has just rung me with the same problem. Both systems have been ok up until today.

Hi All,

No luck with ask/google/altavista.

Have you tried running Ad aware and spybot search and destroy?

I also tried microsoft for rpc error but it only refered to the technical pages.

I have the same prog trying to get on the net. Norton, however, as well as AVG and Housecall, report the machine clear.

C:Windows/sys32/mblast.exe

Norton and AVG up to date.

I permitted the link to the net and rpc error was not seen again.
