I get this error when connecting to a W2K server.  The net share indicated that share ICP$ is missing.  I can add it, but it goes away in a few minutes.  There is no virus or trojan found.  There are no weird bat files that have net share /delete anywhere and no where in the registry.  I've tried everything that everyone says with no luck.

Is the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service running?

You can find this (you probably know, but just incase)
Start->SEttings->Control Panel then Administrative Tools then Services.  It should always be running...

I'm running W2k SP4.  Everything is up-to-date.  I just noticed when I do a "net use" on the server it shows a bunch of random IP address, some disconnected and a few connected  for example,  \\68.55.23.2\ipc$  status disconnected.  Some are connected though.  What in the world does that mean?
