ERROR messages: RPC SERVER UNAVAILABLE and WINDOWS CANNOT START FIREWALL/ICS RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot access the internet.  When I try to ipconfig/renew I get the message RPC server unavailable.  I've checked in services and the RPC server is set to automatic.  This is a recent problem.  I believe it happened a few days after and update of MS Security essentials.  I have since uninstalled security essentials (manually).  I am also getting the following error message: windows cannot start firewall/ics.  I know the cable modem is working fine and I am hard wired to the modem via ethernet. 

    Help would be appreciated
