After applying several updates last night and rebooting we no longer can connect to one of our servers.  I can ping the gateway and other machines on the LAN from the server but I can't ping the server from any of the other machines.  When I attempted to open the firewall program I got the message "Windows Firewall cannot run because another program or service is running that might use network translation componet (ipnat.sys)".  The machine is a Compaq/HP Proliant ML530 with only one NIC enabled.  What is going on!
