After performing a system reset on my windows 10 Home PC. On booting I get a critical error "Task Scheduler service has encountered RPC initialization error in "RpcServerUseProtseq:ncacn_ip_tcp". Additional Data: Error Value: 14." Connection to wifi router is OK but no connection to the internet.

A search for possible fixes yielded

but the registry entry referenced does not exist. I have also tried ip reset and flushing the DNS catalog without success.

Any help would be appreciated...
