We run W2k server on one of our servers.  It is used to run a program that requires SQL.  When you reboot the server it says that the page file can't be found or is too small.  I have tried the fix to increase the size of the page file thinking that would fix it.  Nope.  Also, the Task Scheduler will not start.  It registers and error 1053.  Because of all of this, the SQL server will not start and therefore this server is pretty useless.  Any ideas what the heck could be going on??  We reformatted the entire server and reinstalled clean.  It worked for a day and the same thing started happening again.

When you try to start the Task Scheduler, you receive:

Could not start the Task Scheduler service on Local Computer.
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

This error will occur if the %SystemRoot%\Schedlgu.txt file has the Read-Only attribute.

To fix this problem:

1. Open a CMD prompt.

2. Type attrib -r %SystemRoot%\Schedlgu.txt and press Enter.
