Hi All

everything was working fine untill i rebooted the server
when it botted up before the login screen appeared a warning saying
** some services could not start ****
when i logged in i when to check event viewer but when i try to click on it it wont let me see any events.

then i went to services.msc

Extended tab is completly blank
standart tab list all the services fine

most the services are not running and when i try to manually start them i get an error
** 1068 The dependency service or group failed to start **
also properties window wont apperar when clicked

Network connections folder is empty
device manager shows network cards fine

any first ideas on whats going on?

Many thanks
