Windows Server 2003 userinit.exe failed to initialize

This occurred after shrinking the SQL log file. Error occurs after entering log on credentials then goes to blue screen. Sometimes the error message referrs to lack of resources, other times it refers to corrupt configuration database
Curser is active, CTL-ALT-DEL gives option to run task manager/shutdown, etc. Try to run Task Manager and it fails, returns to blue screen.
Booted from CD, from Recovery Console ran Chkdsk r, it said it repaired one or more errors, but still have the same issue.
Chkdsk reported plenty of disk space.
Any ideas? This is a production server and is used to update price and item information for five stores.
