Re: Need PC help from ya folks.
Did he install a legit copy of Quicken? The reason I ask is I am wondering if there is any possibility that he might have some spyware or a trojan installed on his machine? Not accusing anyone of anything. The RPC call isn't too odd, but requesting a shutdown is. And I don't know why Quicken would use RPC. Besides, what better program to hack than someones financial info. If it is a legit copy, then he should be able to give Quicken a call and get a fix. Other than that, hopefully someone else has more experience with Quicken.. Does it do this when connected to the net/lan or disconnected? And I would be leery of connecting it to a network until you get this sorted out.
