Workstation Services won't start on SBS 2003
Posted on 2007-10-12
I have a problem. My SBS 2003 server was infected by a virus which Symantec caught--and it required a reboot to clean the virus. Upon the reboot a service did not start which was the Workstation service. The Workstation service didn't start because it had a dependency that failed to start called Windowservices. I looked at Windowservices and it looks like it was installed by the virus. There is no normal description for the Windowservices and the path it points to is c:\msinfo.exe--which has I understand it is not a valid Windows file. My question is how do I remove the Windowservices so that the Workstation service will run? Even if I disable Windowservices the Workstation Services won't start. Presently, I can't connect to any remote drives because the Workstation Service and it's dependencies aren't running. Any thoughts or help is appreciated.
