How to Reinstall RPC Server for Windows


You can tell when things go awry with RPC (Remote Procedure Call). Some telltale signs include when you cannot view important utilities such as the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) or event logs. Another indicator is when you try to move a desktop icon and it does not budge. Often, this is misdiagnosed as a driver issue, but instead, it is the computer system crying out for you to reinstall the RPC server by editing the Registry Editor.

  • Go to the command line. To do this, press "Start" and then press "Run."

  • Type "regedt32" and then press "OK."

  • Make sure each value is in view for the following key: "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RpcSs." Next, double-click "Start."

  • Go to the "Edit DWORD Value" dialog box and type in the number "2." When finished, close the Registry Editor.

  • Reboot your computer and test for proper functioning.

Tips & Warnings

  • As a safety precaution, always back up the registry before you make any edits to it. If you create a restore disk through Backup and Restore Wizard, be sure to check the option to save all of computer settings.
