I recently reformatted my computer and I seem to have some difficulties with "Services.msc". I am running Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3 on an Intel Pentium 4 model D915 GAV. My problem is that most of the services under "Services.msc" that are set to automatic do not run on start-up. This includes the DHCP client to get on the internet, and the Windows Installer service needed to install lots of programs. I can open and start services manually without any problems. When I try to go to the "dependencies" tab in the properties of these services, I am hit with a "Win32: The RPC server is unavailable." That error has come up when trying to install my sound drivers off of my driver disk as well. I have an Everest report if that will help at all.
Thank-you in advance!
