This was a System Wide E-mail here at work... I'm copying it to give any guys a heads up with XP Software This e-mail is from my co-worker over in data tech....... "I hate people who make virus's they just simply make tech support operators have bad days. I'm willing to bet at least 5 people on this board have this new virus. If you have windows XP and you got this error message, then you got it "Windows must now restart because the remote procedure call RPC service terminated unexpectedly NT Authority System has initiated the shutdown since the RPC service terminated unexpectedly." Needless to say we got alot of calls about this here at in tech support. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/...in/MS03-026.asp Go here and download the patch. If you have windows xp, you want the windows XP 32-bit patch. http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcen...aster.worm.html Here is symantec's report on the virus, has symptoms and removal instructions. This was a clever virus. It actaully atempted to crash microsofts website that had the patch to stop the virus."
