Hi There, I have a windows 7 and two window Xp machines in a workgroup. We are sharing files and directories. Suddenly I could not reach my share on de Windows 7 machine using one of the XP PC's. When I investegates this more I found that the server service on the Windows 7 machine wilt not load and gives error code 126. Also some related service don't start. I have checked for virusses and other maleware but wasn't able to find any thing. One issue maybe related. It did occur after I installed a Sambaserver on a Ubuntu PC and connected it with the workgroup. This connection is by the way working for the XP machines.
Does some have some suggestions?
Regards,
JK

Hi There,
The error 126 is given when I start the service server manually. I open the service manager and find the service server and activate start there. I have followed the link to the MS helping pages, but there is no solution given only things to examine. Such as the depending services that maybe the problem (the services where service server is depending on). But there are no services where this services is depending on. I have tried to uninstall and install the sharing service at the network interface, but no results over there.

Error 126 suggest that the file that needs to be loaded is not available. In the registry I've looked up which file will be loaded and that file is available. Even when I make the file unavailable I get the same message!

The most irritating is that it worked for years and "out of the blue" it stopped working. The PC is my media center in the living room and not a PC where make changes often. I believe I haven't change it in de last year. Only a renewing of Norton v4 and the updates from MS are in order.

For me it is now 11:00 AM. At 8:00 PM (when I'm at home) I will check the event Id.

regards,
John

My first suggestion is: uninstall northon.
I personally had the most terrible problems ever I installed northon and there are some unexplained reasons where i figured out that northon was the problem.
And i gave northon a lot of chances but they are just messing up your system and then throw the responsible away. Try this as first. I personally recommend you strongest avira, avast, eset for free or mc affee as payed version if you want to have a good program.
