Windows 2003 Server Services.exe out of control
Posted on 2006-06-14
Having performing an ill-advised installation of Ricoh's scanrouter V2 lite on an Windows 2003 Active Directory Server,
services.exe is now using 152000k and consuming 95%+ of CPU.
When running the services panel , i cannot see anything onthe extended tab, only the standards tab.
Per Ricoh's instructions i manually removed the rds and rdcab folders and eliminated all references to scanrouter in the registry.
Unfortunlately, i could not remove the legacy scan router references.
Using msconfig i found and turned off a 'delivery service' startup entry and also turned of a Ridoc Server Information record in the services list.
I've run out of ideas. This is urgent as this machine is our primary file server as well as the domain controller. It is still of some use so down time
must be kept to a minimum while trouble shooting
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
