[SC] EnumQueryServicesStatus:OpenService FAILED 1060:

The specified service does not exist as an installed service.

I have read I'm SOL, and reinstalling is the way to go at this stage, any ideas gang?

It's SBS2008 Standard edition.  SP2, and Exchange is 2007, however, there may be some updates for it.  Am I best to reinstall 'er?
