Services Won't Start

Windows 2000 Server

After a reboot, because certain functions were laggy, almost half of the automatic services won't start, and I can't start manually. It gives me the Error 1053. Which I looked up and MS says that I need the .NET framewokd 1.1 SP1, which I have installed. So I thought I'd reinstall it, but I can't because the Windows installer service is amoung the many that won't start!!! PLEASE HELP!

Hi crosslanes,

What is the source of the event id 1053 ?

Check to make sure your application log is not full. If so, empty it then try restarting your services.

Your event viewer contains the application log
Hi crosslanes:

>>by source do you mean when/where do I get the message?

When you open event viewer and you see the errors, you have the information about :

- Type of the report (Error, Information, Warning)
- Date and Time
- Source
- Category
- Event ID
- User and Computer

And if you double Click in the error you also get more information.
