Unable to access network shares on MS Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2

Hello all. I am having problems accessing network shares on windows small business server 2003. I am able to ping the server and access via remote desktop. When I review the list of shares in the management console all shares appear. when I attempt to restart "server" services I get an error saying unable to start services and that one or more dependent services could not be started. It appears as though one of the services necessary to run the "server" services is not starting but it is not clear which one. Upon restarting the computer, all services that are required via the dependencies tab are started but they do not restat when I attempt to restart the server services.

Thanks in advance if you have any ideas.
