Can anyone help?

Thanks

Too many possibilities here....

I am assuming you had a catastrophic failure of some point. How did we get where we are? Did you reload from media? Was this a proprietary backup solution that promised to restore the entire system?

What does the event log say? It should give you a reason.

Check netlogon service is in started state or not.

netlogon is running.

Microsoft exchange management is also running. all other exchange services are not starting.

I am also unable to run (they does not run at all) Server Manger and IE.

I have used devcon to remove some ghost network interfaces.

Also, some background:

Following a number of failed full data restores, we restored system state; then exchange folders  and Microsoft Small business server folder on the C: drive.

Do you know if there is anything inside the windows directory that we need to restore?

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

thank you
