quite possible a hardware issue i.e. faulty memory module after crash, faulty drive

run through basic checks for them, take it down to minimum memory

what OS and SP are you running, reapplying a SP can help to fix issue if its a software corruption

does the error come up every time or has it just happened once?

in which case you may want to rule out other processes/programs that run at start up

check what hotfixes have been applied post service pack to you can reapply any of them

you can build a new licensing server at a different system ...
or uninstall / reinstall the license functions...
... and call the clearinghouse to recreate your licenses.
