    I have been having a lot of problems on my Dell (Windows XP), mostly programs not responding. My problem right now is that the "RPC server is unavailable". I am also noticing that javascript or new windows will not pop up for me. What's the problem??? Thanks

    If you (or persons unknown) have disabled Remote Procedure Call try this:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RpcSs
    "Start"=dword:00000002

    How would I do this? Under the "RUN" program?
