Hi ,

I am having issues with Mozy Pro backup on my server. Mozy support wanted me to check a reg key located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services but the folder is missing and there is a blank folder in its place that just expands inifinitely.  
the only reg folder with the services folder is ControlSet003

Any Ideas?

I've never seen CurrentControlSet go missing.   Don't suppose you have any idea how long it's been like that?

I can't believe you aren't having other issues

Are you logged on locally to the server?   Logged on as Administrator?

The ideal solution is to restore it from backup...whatever you were using before trying to install MozyPro

That's why i asked how long it had been like that...if you knew

I don't think you have many options here....
Registry entries are unique to your particular server environment

I doubt even a support to MS would get this resolved without a "reinstall"

I wouldn't reinstall a SBS 2003 server at this point in the life of SBS products.  SBS 2008 has been out for a while and SBS 2011 is out now.
