How can I fix an RPCSS error on my Windows 2000?

Question

I keep having rpcss errors in unknown. Sometimes I crash first than at reboot I get the error.I'm home- networked to a windows 2000 operating system. My first thought is that it is networked related because my son recently upgraded the windows 2000 computer from a windows 98. This seems to coincide with my errors. Also my scandisk seemed to stop working along with it. I also wonder if my Black Ice firewall might be causing the problems.Any trouble shooting suggestions? Thanks.
