I have a new IBM Lenovo Thinkpad X Series. I have a problem of my machine shutting down the whole time without warning. It has to do with the RPC that fails. I went into services to change recovery for rpc failure from shut down machine to do no action. I cant change it. It is grade out. What is causing this to fail.

Please see error message below. THis machine is connected to SBS2003. It happens to other machines too that has vista business and connected to sbs 2003. I am also running office 2007. It started this morning after installing a couple of recommended vista updates from microsofts website.

The Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 1 time(s).  The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Reboot the machine.

Faulting application svchost.exe_RpcSs, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp 0x4549adc4, faulting module RPCRT4.dll, version 6.0.6000.16525, time stamp 0x469c344c, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0006fff9, process id 0x3cc, application start time

Please help this is driving me insaign. I lose my work all the time. The screen goes all funny and then it just reboots.
