WINSRV.DLL missing on certain workstations.
Posted on 2003-12-09
I've been working with a support team for a week now, and a perculiar problem arose this morning, for 6 different users. When they booted up, they had a blue screen, stating "winsrv.dll" is missing. I checked this via recovery console, and it wasn't missing at all.
These users all have somthing in common:
Windows 2000 Professional
Service Pack 2
We have since solved this issue via restore, but I am searching high and low for the cause of it. I am suspecting an auto-update that was applied to the network recently, but I cannot be certain.
If anyone has had the same problem, or know the cause of this enigma, could you please post a description and your hypothesis?
Many thanks in advance.
