Wins, DNS, and DHCP problems!
Posted on 2004-11-23
My W2k DC server crashed this pass weekend while doing a virus scan. After booting, the System Task-Service Controller and WINS services would not start. The System Task-Service Controller service was new to me; System Task-Service Controller service executable path is c:\winnt\system32\services.exe.
After disabling System Task-Service Controller service, I noticed that it was now the path changed to c:\winnt\system32\service.exe. Indicate that is maybe a trojan virus. I download the most recent verision of Symantec Corporate Editon virus definitations, installed them, reboot and performed a clean scan on my server.
I updated the registry and changed the System Task-Service Controller back to c:\winnt\system32\services.exe. Now WINS is not working. DNS and DHCP services are started to have errors. Has anyone expirenced these types of problems?
