Dell 2 x xeon  server mega ram. Performance never been a problem

unsure what the cause but cannot access

control panel
windows explorer hangs
ie hangs and no internet access
av update hangs.
sp4 install hangs

takes a lifetime to reboot

I have done the following

msconfig > removed internat.exe
ran stinger > nothing
installed windows installer 3.0

Its running an sql database and pretty much nothing else.

I am scratching my head. Only found this problem out when trying to remove norton and reinstall it and control panel was not working

There is a document that talks about removing and replacing .cpl files but I can navigate to see those files. I am pretty much snookered.

ran sfc/scannow by the way and fine.

any ideas??????
