I suggest you to scan the system with antivirus and malwarebyte application.

Make sure RPC (Remote Procedure Call) service is running. If not restart the service.

Go to startup service (type msconfig in command prompt)  -->select service--> see below Hide all microsoft service check that ---> All microsoft related service will hide--> uncheck remaining services in that list-->  Select OK--> Restart the system.

If still face same error.

Repair the OS with OS DVD

Good idea to run AV scans.

1) Run the System File Checker tool (sfc /scannow)

2) Downlod and run System Readiness tool:

Do you still get the error? If yes you have to run an In-Place Upgrade of Server 2008:

It seems your registry or one of the DLL is corrupted.

Have you scanned your server to check if it is infected with virus.

When last the server works fine? You can see if you can use the lastknown good

Normally no, but I would create a full OS backup before.
