I took your advice and chosed the link to symantec. I ran
the scanner and said no virus found. Also I found
somewhere in here to temporilly disable the shutdown
error, you can do the following....
Click on start -> run
in the dialog box type cmd and press enter
then in the cmd window, type in "shutdown -a"
I did that and let Ad-aware continue to scan. After the
scan and rebooting the computer, the RPC error went away.
So I think everthing is ok now unless you or anyone else
thinks otherwise then please post your opinion or ideas.
