    I'm having a problem with my SP2 upgrade.

    Each time I boot my system it takes for ever to boot up.
    Once at the login screen it takes along time to login.

    Once that happens my wallpaper just sits there. Explorer never loads.
    Then I get an error saying that Remote Procedure Call service was terminated system must reboot.
    Task manager is the only program that I can use. Can I rerun SP2 setup? Where is it stored?
    Is there a link to a full download of SP2?


    It keeps doing this.
    How can I fix this.
    Booting into Save Mode has no effect either.
    Is there a solution?

    Formatting is not an option, as I have some valuable data on the drive.

    I haven't had any prblems with this before SP2
    Why would it pop up after upgraded to SP2

    Also a recent virus scan had been done and no viruses dected.

    I've never seen anything of that sort in the process list either.

    MSBlast contains a denial-of-service (DoS) attack aimed at Microsoft's windowsupdate.com. MSBlast updates the system Registry with the following line containing "msblast" usually in this registry location looking something like the following:
    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\windows auto update" containing "msblast.exe".

    Do a search on your hard drive for " msblast.exe " If you have this >
    1. Delete msblast.exe (usually found at c:\windows\system32\msblast.exe).
    2. Delete the Windows Registry key: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\windows auto update" containing "msblast.exe". This is what causes the virus to start on reboot. To edit the Registry, go to Start->Run and put in "regedit".

    Remember buzlink to always backup your registry files in case of problems. You can also do a google search " Remote Procedure Call service was terminated system must reboot" and you will get pages of replies.
