When I try to logon to my windows 7 64bit stand alone machine, I get the error message "the RPC server is unavailable"
It accepts the login - says welcome to windows then the error message waits a while then reboots. It has a fingerprint reader, but gives the same error when using a password. It will not start go any further then this in "safe mode" or "last know good configuration mode" or any other mode.. Did a checkdisk booting from a cd rom. Booting from a CD rom, I can see all of the files..
HP dv9000 4 gig ram
Stand alone - no Domain or homegroup
Windows 7 Ultimate installed since it was released
fingerprint reader installed, but I get the same error using a password
up to date on service packs, MS Defender, AVG (free ver), Malware (free ver), Spybot (free ver)
Hoping to not have to do a re-install
thanks in advance...
