I would scan for an infection using Malwarebytes but this might help too.

***Note***

My job has blocked Europe by the firewall which means I can't access this site from the office anymore. So I will barely be here if at all. In case you cared.  :smash:

Can you confirm the error code?

 

Usually, a Microsoft error code is 8 hexadecimal digits, like this: error code 0x80070123.

You report only 3 hexadecimal digits.

This is the Windows error message:

 

 

EPT_S_NOT_REGISTERED

There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper.

1753 (0x6D9)  

 

Is your RPC Endpoint Mapper service running?
