My computer keeps restarting after something to do with a Remote Procedure Call (RPC) terminates unexpectedly -or- "svchost.exe" keeps crashing.

You've been hit by the RPC exploit, a serious flaw in the Windows NT line of Windows products (NT, 2000, XP, and 2003 Server). If this has happened, your system has been compromised, and your only option is pretty much to reformat and reinstall all your programs from known-good sources. Any single part of your system could be infected with who-knows-what, as the RPC exploit gives a malacious user unrestricted access to your system.

For more information on the exploit:
