    My trouble started a few days ago when Google Desktop Search updated
    itself. The next time I re-booted windows hung part way through
    loading and then I got a message box stating "....windows will shut
    down in 60 secs, please save any work in progress etc.This shutdown
    authorised by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM" and below that"Remote Procedure
    Call(RPC) service terminated unexpectedly" The RPC is set to start
    automatically in Services.
    After restoring a Disk Image to get back to where I was, I tried
    uninstalling altogether. Almost the same result on Re-boot. Same when
    trying to manually install latest version as told I must uninstall old version and reboot before installing new version, hence caught in trap referred to before.Have also uninstalled
    manually from the Registry.
    All tried many times, have had to restore a disk image about a dozen
    times so far.
    Any ideas welcomed, especially from anybody who experienced similar.
    OS is XP & SP2 fully up to date.o_O

    Nothing so far, but I since went to Google Desktop site and downloaded again. Ran the programme and was informed Desktop Search had been updated and to restart to activate. Back to the RPC messages etc. and a closed loop of .....restart...hang...RPC message...restart ad infinitum. Thank God for Acronis True Image!!!
    I've set my firewall to stop google desktop updater from accessing the internet, as, the first times this problem occurred I didn't realize what was causing it.ie. update took place, and problem only noticed following morning, ie. next time I booted...!!!

    I didn't understand how this affected SpywareBlaster?

    I'd uninstall Google Desktop Search without hesitation. Does it have a purpose?

    I can't uninstall!!!
    Once I do, I can no longer get computer booted. That's the problem. Goes into this closed ring,..hang,..RPC message,..re start,..etc. If I can't use it, I want rid of it.
