How full is your hard drive? If it is full (like less than 1GB free space) then this is not enough for essential services to run. You will need to either upgrade to a bigger hard drive, or clear out some space.

RPC server is unavailable also print spooler service is not running.


Press Windows+R key and type

services.msc and click ok

Stop both

Remote procedure call and printer spooler services.Start them again.

See if that helps

If stopping and starting them again doesn't help (as narenxp has posted) then you'll have to clear out space or upgrade.

Wow that is a major issue and I would be very concerned as to why it went missing in the first place.

Is everything else running OK?
