We have a computer running windows NT4.0 workstation with sp6a.  The other day it hung and after it was reset, the workstation service could not be loaded.  We uninstalled/reinstalled the workstation service and then reinstalled SP6a.  Now the workstation service will start manually but not automatically.

Any Ideas?

Thanks

What error do you get the first time it fails in the event log?  Is it set to start automatically in  Start, Settings, Control Panel, Services?

Have you applied the SRP package for NT 4?  How many NIC's does this computer have?  I would remove all the network cards, services, protocols reboot and then apply SP6a see if the machine will function properly without networking, then add the network services back in.

Doing the various uninstall and install work is time comsumnig and is sort of guesswork and may not work.  The Computer is hardly ever rebooted.  The solution is going to be to start the service manually (icon on desktop) each time the workstation is rebooted.  The customer does not want to afford the time.  

Thanks
