For the "RPC Server unavailable" and iKernel.exe problem:

This is an annoying problem. Here is the solution that worked for me:

1. In the run dialogue, type dcomcnfg. (This may look similiar to things you've already tried, keep going!)
2. Double click on Component Services.
3. Double click Computers.
4. Right click My Computer and press properties.
5. If you see a COM Security tab, click it.
6. In access permissions, click "Edit limits".
7. Click the add button and type "SYSTEM" in all caps, press okay's and apply's.
8. Do the same for the "Launch and Activation" box, which is right below access permissions.

That should work. "SYSTEM" should be allowed by default, though; I'm not sure why it isn't.
