Hi guys,

I have a couple of question.  I have restarted my sbs2003 server. and now users are not longer able to log in.   the server pop up a message.. One or more services are not running.....
I went to services and the only services that is not running is the manager center, in the description for this service, I can read  

 "On domain controllers this service enables users to log on to the network using the Kerberos authentication protocol. If this service is stopped on a domain controller, users will be unable to log on to the network. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start".

when I start the services I got a error 32:  the services can not access the file because it is being used by another process.

I appreciate your help.

Before spending to much time chasing the error, you may want to try another restart and see if the issue is persistant.

nothing has changed, we suffered a power outage and the server was restarted.

Can you see any reference for oypokernx if you search the registry using regedit?

also I found another register in the following path
local machine, system, controset001, enum, root, legacy oypokernx.
I can't delete this key.... I think I could be a virus.

Run CCleaner on the box, ensuring you back up the registry first!

As a precaution make sure any essential data is also backed up.

Firstly make sure you have good backups - Make additional image backups as well. You may have to restore back to an earlier time
Get a list of current services running - best to use Process explorer
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653
rather than typing net start at a command prompt
Then you should use a livecd anti-virus scanner to check the system i.e. boot from your updated  anti-virus disk or create one from sites like Panda or AVG. Of course you'll need to schedule downtime for this.
Once you are sure that the system is free of viruses and anomalies, you need to reset ALL passwords especially the administrators in case they were stolen.

Let us know how you go.

Not a SBS 2003 service and the fact it has poker in the name I would assume its an infection of some sort.  Run 'Autoruns' and take a look through and disable the entry relating to this.  Make sure you have a backup / registry backup before making any changes.
