had some major issues with my pc today,
first started with mcafee saying i wasnt protected and then it did an auto update, after that it all went pair shaped, i started to get the error:

NT Authority\System Error Message: "This system is shutting down. Windows must now restart because the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly."

got it a couple of times and then it stopped doing it, but now i am missing the task bar, cant copy paste or move anything, internet wont connect and also i noticed that mcafee now looks different both in the icon and the screen, also it looks like im in classic view now.

Hello first try this...
Click Ctrl + Alt + Del to get the task manager up.
On the 'Processes' tab find "explorer.exe" and end that process.
Your desktop will go away.
Click on the 'Applications' tab and click New Task.
Enter "explorer.exe" as the task to start.
Your desktop will then come back.
Now try to launch IE again.

I've had the exact same issues. No wireless connectivity. No taskbar/start bar. No volume working.

I ran a Symantec Worm scan and a McAfee "Scan Absolutely Everything" scan and nothing was found. I installed Malware Bytes from an external harddrive, but I get an error message that won't let me run it.

Help, pleasE?

I just tried this, and everything disappeared and then reappeared. But still no taskbar, no wireless connectivity, no Start button.

I have 2 finals next week and paper due tomorrow. Need help pronto, please!!

Please run System File Checker sfc /scannow... For more information on this tool see How To Use Sfc.exe To Repair System Files

NOTE for Vista users..The command needs to be run from an elevated Command Prompt.
Click Start, type cmd into the Start/Search box,
right-click cmd.exe in the list above and select 'Run as Administrator'


You will need your operating system CD handy.

Open Windows Task Manager....by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC

Then click File.. then New Task(Run)

In the box that opens type sfc /scannow ......There is a space between c and /

Click OK
Let it run and insert the XP CD when asked.

This may be the quicest solution,next to a reformat and install. You will need to create a CD and boot from it.
Run Avira Rescue System
