Exchange Transport Service won't start / stops

I have a newly built Exchange 2010 Server which was working okay, now the Transport service keeps stopping and won't start after a reboot.  If I start it manually it will run for a moment or two then stop.

And nothing when you try to start it again?

Are you on Exchange 2010 Rollup 2 yet?

You haven't by anychance disabled IPv6?
If so then this is why the Transport Service keeps stopping.

Another possibility is check that the SMTP service is not installed, this is not required for Exchange 2010
