Server Service won't start. Gets "Access Denied"

The svchost.exe process exceptioned out at reboot.  The SErver service won't start.  Keeps getting 'Access Denied' when I try to restart it from within Services MMC.  When I look at the permissions on C:\windows\system32\svchost.exe, the System account has full control.

Saw this message right after rebuilt the server from backup image.  Since rebooting again, I have not seen the message since.  Maybe just a fluke?
