    I have recently been having problems with windows 7 when trying to use the internet. It will work fine for a while but then all of a sudden it will stop finding web pages and any downloads etc i have going on. After restarting it works fine again but only for a short period of time.

    I checked the Action Center and I got an action called "Remove RPC Virus virus", i've looked everywhere for some information on this and why it seems to be affecting me. When I clicked on the action the only information I was given was to try and instal some anti-virus programs. I've tried running several different anti-virus programs and anti malware programs but they don't seen to find any problems..

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    HouseCall seems to have found an infection named "rpc.exe" which has been healed so I assume that the problem has been solved (fingers crossed). Thanks for your help.
