Every once in a while usually while usingIE, I keep getting the following error message "This system is shutting down. Please save all work in progress and log off. Any unsaved changes will be lost. This shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM

Time before shutdown: 60 seconds

Message
Windows must now restart because the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly"

Please help me.

I think I had something similar to that. Its a virus, it might be MS blast, I'm not too sure. At the time I didn't remove the virus, but I found some settings that allows you to turn off the automatic shutdown. Unfortunately I'm not at home so I can't tell you where to go, sorry. I'll find out later

I think it is MS Blast, because when I open Task Manager, I see a process that says Msblast.exe. lol

Awesome, but its best to make sure that you have removed all spyware, because its recommended by scanning with 2 different anti-spyware software.

But if you say that it is resolved. Then that is all good.

Hi, I'm Freddie.

You could also try to validate your Windows Copy. :wink: Fake copies tend to give problems.
