And about winstart001.exe, if you still have it, please refer to this: http://boards.cexx.org/viewtopic.php?p=1630

Vlk
Thanks for the info...
I have never seen this filename appear anywhere in my startup files ever...
the only time I have ever seen it was on avast's warning yesterday. I will do another search and see what I can find. :-[

Yes, I think that the file RPCSS.exe is really responsible for the RPC service on Windows 9x or ME. So, deleting it could cause the problem mentioned above.
You are right that the file is mislabeled (it's version info says "Windows NT operating system" - but this time, it should be there.
