Strange SBS problems.
Posted on 2007-08-01
I have an SBS 2003 box that recently had some trojan activity (SayOSay) and the hard drive collapsed. Now up again, there are a couple of things that it does that I cannot work out.
- First of all, in Windows Explorer, EXE file types are listed as ??? rather than Application.
- Most control panel applets do not run - i have to invoke them with control.exe "applet".cpl (etc)
- SBS/NTBACKUP cannot backup the Exchange Information Store.
- And some EXE files I do run bring up an MSI Installer parameters dialog box rather than running the program.
Are these related at all, and can anyboy shed any light on them for me? I bunch these together in case one symptom gives a clue to another, but yes, they are seperate problems.
Server - from the users' point of view - seems to be otherwise working well.
Any assistance appreciated.
