This is what happend:

1. The machine had a lot of disk activity.

   I restart the computer.

2. Before the login i have an exception in
lvchost.exe. Click return to end process and cancel to debug.

   I press return.

3. Then an exception in lsass.dll is made and when i press return to end the process i get a dialogbox that restarts the server in about 40 seconds.

   I restart the computer and if i run it again the same thing happends. If i run in safemode with network the same thing happends. If i run in safemode without network the lvchost.exe fails but i can access the computer.

How can i fix this problem ?

Regards
Andla

Try re-registering that DLL file and then reboot the server.

I found the sevicepack 2 and are downloading it right now. Lucky me that I have fast connection and that I have cd-burner or else I would have to split the file and copy it to 90 floppy disks :-).

About the re-register the dll. What good would that do if the lvchost.exe fails ?

Does the Windows 2000 installation CD have the option to repair a damaged Windows 2000 system ? If so then i could perhaps do that. If not what would happend if i reinstall Windows 2000 ?

Do a reinstall, but when you get to the screen asking whether to reinstall or perform a  repair of the existing, then run repair.

The repair option isn't immediate, it occurs right after the system examiniation.

I found it now. Thanks! (just around the corner :-) )

I don't know how to fix this with Recovery Console.
Could you help me ?

I try the other option meanwhile.

The other option just goes round in a loop and don't fix the problem.

Removable database storage - It appears that you may have something for removable storage that is damaged, or maybe a driver problem.

Disable the service and see how the server responds. If it's okay, then reinstall the service to fix it.

Do you have any third party removable storage drivers or software installed?

I have a sofware called formweb witch I have disabled. And I have the SQL server 7.0 installed. I have timbuktu and VNC. But i'm not sure if this will help. Because when I start in safe mode the svchost.exe error still occure and when I take a look in the services I can se that almost all services are not running. A good advice that should be well documented is if there is a lot of diskactivity in the background then don't restart the computer until it silences. Well I regret that I restarted the computer I should have waited a little longer.
I suppose that only the most important services are running in safe mode and svchost.exe hosts services. Maybe I can try to disable one by one that are running in safe mode and se what the result will be ?

I would do just that for now. But it looks like you may need to do a reinstall of the server software since it won't allow you to do a repair.
