Avoid / Stop one minute shutdown timer due to RPC

When due to an unexpected error, or reference, the OS (Windows NT, XP) thinks that system is under attack 'Remote Procedure Call' (RPC) calls for a shutdown in 60 seconds.

In such situation if one is not interested in shutting down th PC, then the solution is quite simple.
i.) Go to 'start' and then to 'run'.
ii.) Write here "shutdown.exe -a" (without quotes).
