When i turn on my laptop, I am able to get to my desktop. But then, some ms-dos window pops up and says something like my account is about to shut down. However, i am able to stop the shut down if i am able to close the ms-dos window in time, my computer doesn't turn off. How could i get rid of this?

Could be The MS Blaster Worm or The Sasser Worm check the links and if you are infected with either worm follow the instructions for removal. HTH

Yes, I agree with Bear. I think your computer is infected with virus too.

Some time back, everytime I surfed the net. after some time, a little windows saying something about RPC (Remote Procedure Call) would appear and shut down my computer within a time frame. And I couldn't stop it.

I had to use another computer asking around what is RPC (I didn't know of this great bleepingcomputer site at that time) and was directed to Norton. Got the fix, ran it in my computer and that settled the problem. By the way, my virus was W32_Blaster_Worm.
Let's stay happy and healthy.
