Default Um... Remote Procedure Call service? Eh?

Ok, this is annoying me very much. Three times in the past hour, my month-old Compaq Presario w/ Windows XP has told me that it will be shutting down in exactly one minute and to save all my work because the Remote Procedure Call Service has terminated unexpectedly.

Um, anyone have any idea what's going on here? It's never done this before and it's very, very annoying.

It did the same thing to me earlier. For some reason, I can't get the links to open.

No, stormy. It only fixes the problem caused by Microsoft's brillant programmers.
