Default RPC server is unavailable."

I'm running Win XP Home EDition and I'm logged on as the Administrator. Everything was working fine then all of a sudden I received errors "No printer installed." There is no printer showing to uninstall.

I've tried to add my Epson printer using the "Add Printer Wizard to add the printer, received error message "Operation could not be completed."

The hardward wizard states there was an error during installation "RPC server is unavailable."

Device Manager shows no problems but no printer installed.

try going to the start button, go to run| and type :
services.msc. after this, look for remote procedure call service or something like it. check to see if there is anything abnormal wit' this service.

The RPC services were disabled so I changed them to Automatic and rebooted. Thanks for the help it's now working fine.
