Windows 7: The remote procedure call failed [Images]

25 Jan 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home premium x86/64
The remote procedure call failed [Images]

Hello, I've recently encountered a problem with the service, RPC.

Everytime I try opening a picture it gave me an error saying:
"The remote procedure call failed "C:\user....."
This only apply to images.

And as well, it's started to affect windows explorer.
I've tried a sfc scan, nothing is wrong.
violations, even in safe mode with networking.
My services are correctly set (hopefully).

I've recently defaulted my firewall rules /inbound rules. (not sure if this affects anything.)
Everything is on admin control.

Default is windows photo viewer, when change to windows photo gallery, it still does not open.
It only open with paint. Otherwise, double clicking on images, gave me an error. First click = nothing.


Now, some programs like display, has been giving me windows explorer errors.
