File Shares quit working on Windows Server 2000 file server

Last Modified: 2013-12-05
All of the file shares which have been used forever have quit working on our Windows Server 2000 file server.  We had a couple of viruses (win32.virut, trojan.adh, etc.) and after cleaning those off the shares no longer work.  I really need these, they are vital and I can't for the life of me figure out how make sharing resume.  New shares aren’t working either.  I tried setting up new ones to test with but can't connect to them either.  I'm wondering if a dll is corrupt or if a service I need is stopped (although I have checked those and everything seems okay there).  Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks.
