Did you change the account used to "log on as" for the Server service?  (I.e. if it's not set to "Local System account", you might consider setting it back to that while you work out exactly what you are attempting to do...)

Okay, so RPC is hopefully set to Log On As "Network Service".
Hopefully you can still access the server console.  If you do, and attempt to start the RPC service, does it fail with a message?  If it does fail, are there any associated messages in the Event Viewer / System?

Have you been able to reboot the server as Jamie Wilson suggests?

Firstly i would recommend you to put this service on manual and restart the system after restarting start this service or you can also check this by setting it on automatic and Put "restart the service" on first second and sub sequential failure and also check all the dependent services like computer browser and workstation should be running . If no success then move on start>>run and type sfc /scannow (but put windows 2003 servers CD first)
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310747

another reason of occurrence of this problem is srvsvc.dll and srv.sys is missing so you can copy these files from the CD to system32 folder (Sfc /scannow  can also do this but i would recommend you to do it manually as well)

Go through with this article as well it will describe the method of tuning server service

also Use following for safe side

Antivirus (use any one)
1. Eset Nod32
2. Symantec End point
3. Kaspersky
4. Norton 360

Antimaleware and antispyware ( use all of these after updating them)
