rpc won't restart
Posted on 2009-12-29
We have a virtual server domain controller. I believe we got some type a virus or malware that infected the server. Malwarebytes identified the problem as affecting the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoActiveDesktopChanges. It deleted the malware. However, it has effected the RPC service. The RPC service is on. Unfortunately, if you right click on the RPC service, everything is greyed out. The service is started, but you can't stop, start or restart the service. I went online and tried some of the fixes suggested with no avail.
