I'm currently trying to restore a certifcate using a Windows 2003 sp2 server.  After doing the restore of the cert, it indicates that the certificate services needs to be restarted.  Upon trying to restart the service, an error is generated:

event ID: 7024
source: service control manager

Bad Key

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  If more information is necessary please let me know and I'll get the information posted as soon as possible.
