Hi liji77,

are you gettin that error on the client event logs or the server event logs?

have you checked how much storage space is available? do you have any quotas setup?

I havn't noticable error event in the windows event viewer.

Please help.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Now what I done is Re-install the Windows 2003 as the following way:

Installed Windows 2003
Installed Network Service like DNS etc
Installed Service Pack 1
Installed all Updates of Windows 2003
Enabled firewall expect for file sharing and
I shared the necessary folder in server

and NO ANTI VIRUS software is installed in the windows 2003 server

Now what are the precuations I have to take the problem that don't happen again?

Monday I will update all the anti virus update in all work station.

Yes.... all the workstations are update with 4400 scan engine
Well... I'm afraid re-installing the server without knowing what the problem was may resolve the issue but we'll probably never know what the cause was.

No domain?? How many workstations are there?
liji77Author Commented:
yes...i have installed active directory service.  The server is as domain.  But all workstation will access  the server through share folder and there are 100 workstations.  The workstations are not joined to the domain.
Please let me know ur commend

Hello Rant32,

The problem is solved by re-installing the Windows 2003 Server without the MCAFEE antivirus software
