I need to know how to restart rpc service because it is the thing that is preventing me from installing the patch so that i can get a lot of my computer functions back ie. cut paste and minimize running windows or programs to the taskbar without closing... i shut down rpc service along with the locator long time ago when i was struck with the blaster worm.. stupid me because it seems that rpc is not meant to be shutdown which is why they have the locator service. Crypto needs to be running to install the patch and rpc needs to be running in order for crypto to start. Ive tried in safe mode to restart but cant(rpc is supposed to start in safe mode but doesnt) ANy help is much appreciated.

Here you go

--------
TIP: Don't disable a service till you know what it does. Right Click on My Computer, Select MANAGE, then click on the SERVICES object in the left pane. Find the service your interested in, Right Click it and select PROPERTIES. The 4th tab is DEPENDENCIES, and will show you what services rely on this one, and what services this one relies on.

Set everything back to the way it was,(if you remember just do the opposite of what you did) Don't start the service, just set it for automatic, Then reboot the machine.

To avoid the shutdown problem:
1. unplug any internet/network connection.
2. On the service check the recovery tab and set it to not take any action instead of Shutdown.
3. Install the patch.


If you cannot get to the services before the shutdown, goto run type:
cmd [enter]
shutdown -a [enter]

Hello,
I had the same problem where I had a friend disbling RPC on my workstation because of the virus I found the following:

Start, run , regedit,
go to :
- HKey_local_machine
-System
- Current control set
- Services
- RPCSs
in their you will see start double click on it and set the value to 2

2 = automatic
4 = disable

hope this helps!
