I have no start tool bar on the desk top. all of the program short cuts do not work. if I go to services/local/standard things that are supposed to start automaticly did not start and I get the message the rpc server is unavable. I can still get on the internet, still run spy but but not mcafee.
I am not sure what happened before this started as the kids were using the computer.
Any help anyone can give?

Go to Start...Run...and type in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Scroll down to the Remote Procedure Call service and the Remote Procedure Call Locator and see if they're "Started". If not, start the Remote Procedure Call Service and see if that fixes the problem.
