I have one PC in a Win2K3 domain that fails to launch the dcom service process launcher. The service is set to start automatically, but never gets past the 'starting' status and it throws an error in the event log which states that the service hung on starting. The service is properly defined as "svchost -k DcomLaunch"
I reconfigured the service to start manually, rebooted the pc, tried to start the service manually and it hangs during the attempted manual startup also.
Any ideas on how to debug this ?
