RPC is "Remote Procedure Call"
This is used in many functions givin' the 2000 and XP OS.
I have written a dozen programs using this local technology and see now that it being WIDELY used by applications using the "net".

I personally would uninstall Windows Media Player.......
Along with a HEFTY virus scan I would.......
Install Spybot Search and Destroy (can be found on Google.com)
Install Adaware (can be found on Google.com)
Get rid of all the unwanted sh*t and then re-install WMP version 9. Get all the sercurity patches and yadda yadda...

RPC has NOTHING to do with Windows Media Player Unless You click on "Media Guide" or "Radio Tuner"

get Zone-Alarm!
with the MSBLASTER worm it closes the RPC, and because Windows needs it running it will automatically shut down.
get the patch for it
