    One day I got a message that the computer was going to shut down, I don't remember why so I checked the event log and look what I found:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Service Control Manager
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 7031
    Date: 31/07/2003
    Time: 6:01:18 PM
    User: N/A
    Computer: HPPAV
    Description:
    The Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000 milliseconds: Reboot the machine.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    What is this? (Well for one it tested my speed)
    And then at the "saving your settings" prompt it hanged with no disk writing.

    I know this message:

    Try to re-install your mouse driver. Maybe that solve this problem,

    Really we have a Logitech optical mouse and it worked even without drivers and the log doesen't talk about mice (or the like):confused:

    Update: I tried to install Windows XP SP1 but, when it was still in the download phase it happened again and I just installed the MouseWare software after that! :eek: (Good thing it was still downloading!) ;)

    Odd, sounds exactly like the blaster worm. You can cancel the shutdown though by typing "shutdown -a" in the run box. although it won't stop the problem and it'll still mess some things up, but it might help if your doing something important

    you don't have to be infected to be affected by msblast.exe

    just need to run windows update.
