Server 2003 Service problem.

I have a server 2003 that failed to reboot when SP2 was installed. I refreshed the OS from the CD, which brough the system back up. I have two problems left that I cannot seem to get through.

1. When I click on any Windows Update exe or Installation Exe's I get "Cannot find Window Class"
2. BITS will not start and depends.exe shows qmgr.dll is dependent on qmgrftp.dll. I have no server of the many I manage that have this file, no references on the web to this file that are valid, and no references to it in my registry.

Server 2003, 250GB OS drive, 4GB Ram, 3 weeks old, Single IP, Running WSUS (which is currently busted), PDC with no client attached at this time.

Try both Dial-a-fix and bitsadmin from here:
bitsadmin.exe /util /repairservice

The bitsadmin worked like a charm. I'm still waiting for the reboot to see if the "Cannot find window class" is repaired after I ran all the update fixes and reinstalls from Dial a Fix.

I'm going to give you the points for the BITS repair and if I have to repost the other issue I will. Thanks.

I cannot reboot to see if it repaired the "Cannot find window class", but I'm giving the points for repairing the BITS service, which was really critical to me. I can't reboot this server until off hours, it is in production.
