Exchange 2007 System Attendant service will not start

I was having trouble moving a mailbox from one exchange server to another. I attempted to restart the system attendant service but it failed to start again reporting that the service had started and then stopped. I found this error in the event log. Any help is appreciated.

event id 1005

Unexpected error The Local Security Authority cannot be contacted ID no: 80090304 Microsoft Exchange System Attendant  occurred.

None of those issues appear to apply. I checked and I can't find anything obviously wrong.

That doesn't apply to this scenario. No accounts were deleted. The only error in the log is the one I provided. I've tried everything I could find.

I restarted the exchange server and the service started automatically.

To say in simple rename the computer from abc to xyz.
Reboot once and now again rename it from xyz to abc.
One more reboot will do this.

If not just disable all 3rd party services and do a clean boot in safe mode and check whether service is starting or not.
