Windows 7: Error : The Remote Procedure Call Failed and did not execute

Windows 7 64 Bit
Error : The Remote Procedure Call Failed and did not execute


I keep getting the The Remote Procedure Call Failed and did not execute error when opening my control panel or windows explorer on Windows 7.

I've made sure the RPC is on and that the second service is on manual so that isn't the problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Check Windows for corruption. Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker up to three times to fix all errors with a restart in between each. Post back if it continues to show errors after a fourth run or if the first run comes back with no integrity violations. Use OPTION THREE of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker to provide us with the sfcdetails.txt file if errors occur.
