WINS Problem on SBS2003

Cannot start the windows internet name service (WINS) service on local computer.
Error 2:  The system cannot find the file specified.

This is the error im getting when I attempt to start the WINS service.  Therefore there is no WINS server in my network.  

I open wins under Administratve Tools and the server has a red cross indicating its not working.  I try to restore the database by browsing to find the wins database file in c:\windows\system32\wins and find the wins mbd database file which i assumed is what its looking for.  I point it to that and the error comes up saying:

"Wins encountered an error while processing the command"

I really want to get this going.  What is the best way to get it up and running - prob just a fresh wins server? and how do i go about this?
