What is the error exactly? RtWlan could be Realtek WLAN so it seems to be a problem with a wireless LAN interface card. Do have any errors/warnings in the event log (Start -> Run -> eventvwr)?

Yes, it seems you have a WLAN interface in the server and it fails to start. Do you actually need the WLAN interface? If not you can just disable it in Network Neighborhood. If you want to run it see if the correct drivers are installed for the Wlan NIC.

Yes i do have a WLAN its a dongle as i dont have a LAN available where the server is situated, but it has the correct drivers installed, although i am an idiot with windows server 2003 i work as a Deployment Engineer within IT so i have a little knowledge lol.  
Thanks for trying
