On a windows 2k computer, the RPC service was Disabled. Is there a method that can restarting it? Right clicking under Administative Serives>Servies has 'start' grayed out.
I fixed my RPC issue.:)
I found this link:
Changing the"Start"=dword:00000004 to "Start"=dword:00000002 change the Disable to Automatic.
So far everything seems to be functioning.
How did it get disabled in the first place?
WELL, I am suspicuous that I could be access via this service. While I am behind a Linksys firewall, and spybot SD says I am clean, I just got a little too paranoid and thought I could try Disable RPC service. I found out you could not turn it back on. (before and after a reboot)
I wish I could tell who and how a service is used by a program since it is never documented.
Thanks for being there to help.
Yeah there are a number of services you should never disable, Plug And Play and RPC are tha main two. They tend to screw up everything otherwise
