Remote Access Connection Manager failed to start

I had a domain controller/Exchange server with a corrupted RAID-5 array so I used Ghost to do a disk clone to another system, and then did a repair install on the clone to get Win2k to recognize the new disk controller.  I then reapplied SP4.

In the System Log in Event Viewer, I'm constantly seeing "Remote Access Connection Manager failed to start because it could not create buffers.  Access is denied."  If I try to start the service manually through Services, I get the same error ("Access is denied.")  For now, I just disabled the service, because it was filling up my event log with several entries per second!  But I would like to get this fixed.

I did some searching and the only real answers I could find were related to Windows XP service pack 1, which this is not - it's Windows 2000 Server with Service Pack 4.

So you didn't follow the steps listed at the KB you got from MS site: -
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/329441

Sometimes it works for other operating systems also.

Let me know.

Thanks

Did you check the Log On As tab of the service? It should set to use SYSTEM Account.
Also run sfc /scannow from run box.

Well, I looked at the KB and the resolution was to reinstall XPSP1, which didn't seem very helpful.  But on your suggestion I looked again and saw that there was a Registry workaround further down the page, so I tried that, but I need to reboot to finish it, and since this is a production server that's not an option right now.  I will reboot it late tonight and check back tomorrow.

The service was set to log on as LocalSystem.  SFC didn't seem to make any difference.

Sorry I forgot to update this. The registry fix did it.

No, thank you! I feel dumb for not trying it in the first place.
