xp 2009 virus server service
Posted on 2008-10-30
I have an issue with the windows xp 2009 virus. I have been able to deal with this virus and clean it out of most of the machines I have come across with the infection. The issue I have is with the server service. It says that it is running and for the most part it works (mapped drives work and shared printers work) but when you try to go through network places or type in a network address (\\server\file) it comes back with the error message server service is not started and it fails to open the file. I have uninstalled file and printer sharing for microsoft networks (which is what installs the server service) restarted and reinstalled it but that was no help. I am thinking that there is probably a registry key that may need reset or changed but I am unsure which ones are related to this service and what their default settings are. I would think that if I can uninstall the service delete all related keys, reboot and reinstall it should take care of it. If anyone can give me at least the registry keys associated with this service or a way of repairing it i would be grateful.
