    I am running windows XP, Home Editiona, Version 2002, SP3. I am running BitDefender Total Security 2013. Recently, I have not been able to get an internet connection. The "Local Area Connection Status" window just stays on "Acquiring network address" and there are not packets being sent or received.

    When I have done an ipconfig /renew the following message appears: "An error occurred while renewing interface "Local Area Connection " The RPC server is unavailable.

    I have disabled the firewall and restarted the computer based on some other posts I read and the issue persists.
