Remote Procedure Call - XP Shutdown

  The Paul 14:11 19 Oct 2003

I've just installed XP Pro. Most things appear to work okay except that I keep getting a message which states

"The system must shutdown ...... System shutdown caused by NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM. Windows must restart because Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectidely."

What is this and how can I fix it. Cheers. Paul

Downloaded as you suggested and things are back to normal again. Much appreciated VoG.

I'm away to read up on all the updates for XP. I hadnt been watching them as I'd been running ME and 98.

Cheers. Paul

Got it again but this time Stinger wont find it and nor will up to date AVG. Any thoughts. Paul

Silly question but "Stinger wont find it and nor will up to date AVG" so how do you know you have got it?

Have you done your XP windows updates?

Hi - it did find them the first time. This time I forgot to disable Sys Restore. TWIT ME. They were there I was just an eegit and forgot the basic rules. Lesson learnt.
