Hello,  Client has a Server 2003 we are running as a Terminal Server, has been running fine until yesterday and now can't get on network, internet etc and event viewer is filling up with this:

The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( explorer.exe ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Windows socket error: An operation on a socket could not be performed because the system lacked sufficient buffer space or because a queue was full (10055), on API 'connect'.

Ran Malware Bytes scan last night found a couple things that it removed and rebooted server and it start right back up with same problem?

Thanks,
Rob

This error is caused when you computer has opened the maximum amount of TCP/IP ports. First I would suggest you try running a spyware and anti-virus scans to make sure nothing is connecting that is not suppose to. (links are in my signature). Then run windows update and download all aviable updates.
Remove the /3gb switch from c:\boot.ini. The root problem in this case is memory pressure on the OS, so removing the /3gb switch will give more memory to the OS and will alleviate this problem.
Let us know if this helps.

I had ran MalwareBytes and it found a couple things, but didn't resolve.  Then ran A-Squared and it found some other junk and got it cleared up.  Thanks for you response.

It is making me choose 2 experts, but only only one person replied and even though I resolved before hearing back from Sandeshdubey, their comment was to check for spyware more, which was the solution.
