WinXP Whizzes... can you help?

  1. My autodial function stopped working. I tried to stop the Remote Call Procedure and restart it, but when trying to stop I get a message that "Windows has encountered an error"... doesn't describe the error or its location.

    Anybody know how to uninstall or reinstall this function?

    TIA
     
  2. I'm not a whiz, but try doing a System Restore?
     
  3. Thanks for the input, but I have System Restore disabled.
     
  4. Sorry didn't get that far, trying to trade and post.
     
  5. Thanks for the responses everybody. I updated a backup system copy from about 3 months ago and got it working again... though I still don't know how to fix the problem should it occur again.
     
  6. Try this first.
    Also, maybe you ran a virus removal or ad-aware remover software or something similar which turned it off. Try looking inside your services to make sure that it is turned on.
    Link shows you how to get to services.
