RPC error causes shutdown

By Langlier ·
i randomly get an error that states an RPC process has been terminated and a countdown to 0 that causes my machine to reset. it does not seem to happen off of any key event or having a certain program running. ive ran norton antivirus but the error comes up before antivirus can finish scanning my drive. has anyone had a similar problem or can give me any advise? ive checked for programs that are running on startup as well and none of the ones that start up would cause this error.

I just spent the whole day answering the phone in regards to the exact problem you are experiencing. Well let me tell you how to fix this...

First, disconnect your internet connection.
Next, enable ICF (Internet Connection Firewall)
Then reconnect your internet connection.
Next d/l this security patch from Microsoft:

Finally, make sure you are not infected with the W32.Blaster.Worm:

You should be back up and running. If not leave a message and I've got one other method for you
