help! "system call failed" bug
Posted 25 February 2010 - 11:23 PM
I have a new windows 7 HP laptop and I've been setting up a lot of software on it recently. Now I can't access anything through my start menu--computer, control panel, documents, etc. Explorer.exe just come up saying "system call failed." Basically I can't get to any of my files/programs. I don't think I messed with anything I shouldn't have...a quick google reveals that I could have disabled my rpc net call service but I have no idea what that is.
Any help would be much appreciated!!

It booted up normally this morning, so that was a relief. I'm just nervous that this could happen again or is the sign of a larger problem...I shouldn't have bought such a new operating system. Lesson learned.
Anyway, thank you. If it happens again I will repost.

Go to your Control Panel click backup and restore in the list of menu options on the left side of the window look for Create a system repair disk in the window that pops up choose your DVD burner drive, have an empty writeable disk in the drive and click create disk.
