Hello there,

I am running Windows XP PRO SP2 and am having a problem with alot of things on my PC. Most of my services have been stopped when looking at msconfig screen. When trying to go to my Administrator Tools under Services, I try to "start" a particular service and get an error stating: Could not start the Remote Procedure Control (RPC) service on Local Computer. Error 1058: The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

I also get other errors like: Could not start the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service on Local Computer. Error 5: Access is denied. When trying to open the database of the Service Pack Files using the Security Configuration and Analysis it tells me that the database is corrupt. For information about fixing the db see online help. Unfortunately I do not have the XP startup disk. I'll never let that happen again!! However, as of now, no disk, only floppies copied from the www.tinyurl website. Can anyone out there help me on this? Microsoft has tried 2 times to try and help me out with no success yet. Even they are stumped as to how to fix my current situation w/out the startup disk. Let me know what more info you need from me re: my pc, etc, etc.

Thank-you in advance for your assistance.

What sort of computer do you have, processor, ram, hard drive, etc.

Also are you running anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall programs? If so what are they?

You need to acquire an XP disk...if you want to take advantage of the opportunities to deal with various problems.
