TNSListner stoped functioning on reboot

A little while ago, I thought it might be a good thing to reboot mt server I have been working on it all day.  I closed all open programs and restarted the server.  Now the TNSListner service will not start.  I get the error "1067: The process terminated unexpectedly" when I try and start it manually.  All my other data base service are starting just fine.

  I went to the the Net 8 Configuration Assistant and tried to configure an new listner ( after I had renamed the non functioning .exe ) I get all the way through and then get the message "Could not create listner".  I have always been able to create a listner this way. Oh and Net Manager, yeah I tried that too - nada.

I have made no changes to my TNSNAMES.ora nor the listner.ora files.  Everything was functioning just fine before the reboot.

Without this as you know, I can not get into my db - Who said that Orical 9i was unbreakable?  Oh that is not the question, the question is how do I get my listner service back up and runnning, and if you know why did it fail anyway?

Do you use DHCP to get IP for the server ? If yes then try to use static IP - try again
