    Hi dave,
    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.
