[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?

Wowza, turns out my head IT guy was just around the corner...it was the forefront security add-on that was preventing from starting because the licence had expired...we just disabled the a/v check in the registry, and it starts now...working on the licence in the meantime...thank you for responding
