many of the system required services not running and marked for deletion on Windows 7
Posted on 2010-08-13
I have an odd scenario... We have a Windows Home Server, Windows XP laptop, and Windows 7 desktop. The laptop and desktop connect to a Home Server. There are a series of shared folders that both the laptop and desktop used to access. A few evening ago a large number of data was being copied from an external hard disk plugged into the desktop to one of the shares on the home server. In the middle of the copy the workstation got the blue screen of death and rebooted. Ever since then the workstation cannot access the shares on the Home Server, however, with the same username/PW the shares are accessible via the laptop. I then created a share on the laptop and tried to get the desktop to see the share. It also can't see the share on the laptop... I then looked at the services on the Windows 7 workstation and saw that a ton of the system services where not running. Some of these being the browser service and other system services... When trying to start the services I get a message stating that it's been marked for deletion. I tried to restore to a previous state and that didn't work. I also tried an inplace upgrade both updating the files before and not updating and neither method works. I get an install error. Is there anyway for run an inplace upgrade and ignore any errors and continue the install? This evening I'll be able to update the ticket with the exact error...
