Windows 7: RPC server is unavailable while opening Windows Media Player

24 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1/Windows 8.1 with WMC x64
RPC server is unavailable while opening Windows Media Player

When I try to play video clips,using
Windows Media Player,it stops
responding.When I click on it,a message
appears saying:

"The application is not responding.The
program may respond again if you wait.Do
you want to end this process?"
I eventually end the program,and get a
new error message:
"Windows Media Player has stopped
working.A problem caused the program to
stop working correctly.Windows will close
the program and notify you if a solution
is available."
Finally,i hit "Close program",and a
message appears:
"RPC server is unavailable.",continuing
with the path to the video clip I have
tried to play.
In the Event Viewer,incident is logged as
