Hi, I'm having a problem with my PC. I'm running Windows XP PRO SP3.Some of the symptoms I'm having are longer than normal login times when logging into an XP account, while if I try to launch certain programs such as my avast antivirus software it will hang. Another problem is that the launching of installers fails on some programs such as HijackThis and will give a windows installer error. The error usally say that the file will fail to install if I'm in safemode or there is an error with windows installer. Please help!

Edit: Another symptom is with the task bar, it will not show active windows or programs even the task manager. Overall the system is running far slower than it has ever run. I took a look in device manager when I tried to create a screen cap of it in paint the I got a error message that says "The RPC server is unavailable".
