Windows 7: Control Panel Error

11 May 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Control Panel Error

When I try to open my control panel or any of the options from the start menu it says


The remote procedure call failed and did not execute

What does that mean

Hey, things you can try:

- Can you check Services to see if Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is set to Automatic and started?
Run services.msc to get there fast.
- Also check it's dependencies in Services: DCOM Server Process Launcher, RPC Endpoint Mapper should be Automatic/Started as well.
- Open command prompt in elevated and run: sfc /scannow
- Try to scan with Malwarebytes/ESET Online

If these won't work perhaps you can try a System Restore. But I am not very familiar with what System Restore fix or what it can't so wait for experienced member to comment before this please.
