Server 2003 R2 server service won't start

Running Server 2003 R2 SP2

Server service won't start. Get error 1075 "dependency service won't start or is marked for deletion". Two dependent services listed Computer Browser and DFS won't start, get error message 1068 service won't start.

Tried reinstalling service pack 2 and repair install. No joy, same error messages.

Event viewer also won't work, service won't start so no help there with problem.

Happened after unplanned restart of server by client when they had internet problems.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks.

Tried running sfc /scannow but it doesn't like the dell operating system disks to use to replace the files. That's why I reinstalled the service pack and tried the repair install.

I saw that article on line but it refers to windows xp/vista not server 2003. Does Server 2003 have the WMI?

I found a utility from Microsoft to scan the WMI, reports WMI is working correctly.

Check system log to see which service is marked for deletion.

There might be anther service on which server normally depends that's no longer listed

Thanks Arnold.

Dependent service not running is dbgsvc.exe . Avira decided it was a Trojan. I carefully scanned a copy of the file with another antivirus and it says its clean.

Now I have to figure out how to restore the file and get the service running again without Avira further "helping" me.

Problem started after Avira update.

If you have reference server, look at hokey local machine system current control set services
Or use sc to recreate the service.

Thanks Arnold.

I did look at another reference server and that particular file/service that was nixed by Avira does not exist. File did show clean from two other antivirus products.

Used sc to find out which services got linked to it as dependent and going through the registry to clean up the mess now.

I appreciate your help as you got me on the right track to figuring out what happened and how to fix it.
