MOSS 2007 Server will not start

I'm having issues with a sharepoint 2007 server not working.  IISadmin and dependancies are not starting and the central administration 3.0 doesn't diplay webpage.

Recurring event warnings and errors in app logs are these 4:  7888, 6482, 3760, 5783.

I've restarted the server and services.  Windows updates is set to not install.

Please help!

Could you verify if recently any changes to your system has happened like updates installation, patch update, password change, GPO change, etc.

Try to perform IISRESET and verify.

Also Check the ULS logs under following location to check the issue.

C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\logs

Please check the event viewer log files and post the error message generating when you perform IISRESET

there were no known changes to the system that I know of in the past several weeks.  Windows update is not set to install updates.  Is there any known issues with a recent patch?

IISreset failed to produce logs in C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\W3SVC1 since 12/26/12

and iisadmin, Ws-management and www could not start.

url logs look empy as well (see attached jpeg).

we need to concentrate on starting the IISADMIN service which will make all other services to start and eventually get the sharepoint working.

Look into below KB and try to follow it. let me know how it goes:

IIS 6.0: IIS Admin Service Does Not Start After Upgrade
Have you tried running the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard to try to repair?
Also, when you look at one of the Event Log entries for Event 5783, does it appear that one of the service accounts is failing? Has the password recently been changed for a service account?
