since installing sp2 to a windows xp pro system an error message appears at startup prior to login, "the instruction at 0x77c47e9f  referenced memory at 0x00000000, the memory could not be read , click on ok to terminate the program or on cancel to debug"

pressing close, cancel or ok gives a box appears to allow the computer to proceed to login and I can enter my password  after a long wait I am presented with the following box

message reads

the  system is shutting down, please save all work in progress and log off ,any unsaved changes will be lost , this shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM

Message

Windows will now restart because the  
Remote Procedure call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly

Looking on google showed only one  reference to this error

Microsoft.com  search shows no references

I have used the symantic fixblast tool but it says nothing to fix

trying last good configuration did not work either

anyone know whats happening and how to fix this problem without losing my data??
