Symantec Password Validation Service - Symantec Corporate Edition 10.0

I am unable to start this service back up on a Windows 2003 server. I get an Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. When I look at the system log in event viewer, I get the following:

Source : Service  Control Manager
Type : Error
Event ID: 7009

Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for the Symantec Password Validation service to connect.

Can anyone provide me assistance to resolve this issue?

The error in Services which you got is normally getting for any software if it not reponding acordingly. From looking at this we can not figure exact problem. Becuase I got this same error for different five or six senarios. So please try to figure your problem via Symantec Password Validation service (the perticular software) from Error Log files and History ..etc.

And please make sure you have not blocked any ports recently via Spyware or and of Firewall.
You can double check oyur ports via telnet.
