My windows 2003 server hangs while applying settings during the boot process. I had uninstalled the antivirus before this started to happen.

I unplugged the nic and it finished the boot process. Then reconnected and the applications running on it are working (ie blackberry server). This server does not have the Powerchute software running on it but it did have Symantec's Endpointe virus protection. I had uninstalled it prior to when the problem started.

I used MSs add/remove. I need to reinstall the antivirus, I wonder if that will solve the issue. I would like to confirm if this is the cause for future reference.

Thanks for the help. That seems to be the cause of the problem.
