Getting the "Windows must now restart because the RPC terminated
unexpectedly" message with a countdown of 60 sec. I know this is
usually indicative of the blaster or sasser worms, unfortunately virus
software is up to date and nothing has been found. I also ran the
removal tools and nothing was found. Also the windows taskbar is
missing and sometimes the desktop icons are missing. Some actions are
no longer working such as cut and paste, creating shortcuts, etc. And,
i am unable to start system restore to rollback to a date before these
problems occured. It's my mom-in-law's 'puter and since I built it for
her everything that goes wrong must be my fault. That's what I get for
being nice. If anyone has any ideas, your help will be greatly
appreciated.

Format - re-install. Its buggered beyond the point of bothering to try
and recover.

If Pac-Man affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in darkened
rooms, munching magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic
music.
