The Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly.
Posted on 2006-06-17
I have a server computer with Windows 2000 Server Family which shows an error begining with the question title, The Remote Procedure... etc, etc.
The machine shuts down in one minute and loops in this fashion indefinitely.
I have searched solutions in this site, but all the ones I have found assume that one is able to boot the computer successfuly, or have enough time to abort the shutdown, disable the RPC service, and download the security patch from Microsoft.
I do not have enough time to perform the fix suggested because the system only gives me a one-minute window. I have not been able to logon yet. Not normally, not Safe Mode, nothing.
Please let me know if have any ideas as to stop the looping and restoring the system to its normal condition.
Thank you very much,
