Just wondering if anyone has any ideas. I have server running windows server 2008 r2. The server was restarted and came back up with the following issues. You can not uninstall programs. You can not open services menu to see what is running. You can not open Network and sharing center. There is a red x through the network symbol at the bottom, but still has network connectivity. I can not open an internet browser. You can not run a diagnose and repair because the service is not running. Also when I check the properties of the computer it does not know how much RAM it has or the CPU. I am a bit confused as to what the issue is. Does anyone have any suggestions ?

I smell a rebuild.. soon.  You need to run some major system diagnostics, preferably off bootable media.

Look here: http://www.hiren.info/pages/bootcd

That or your Windows install just took a major dump.  Can you open the Event Viewer?  Might be able to start it via the command line using eventvwr.exe

Hello JMRSoftware,
Run memory and HDD diagnostics and than try to run "sfc /scannow"

Hello,

I have tried a sfc /scannow it does not even run. I can not even disable the other services and have windows just boot with ms services. It just spins and goes non responsive. The anti virus splash screen comes up Mcafee through sonic wall and just sits there. I am currently backing it up and I am going to be checking for viruses etc in just a bit.

I suppose that you tried more than one restart. Can you boot to safe mode?

I can not boot into safe mode or safe mode with network. The second I go to try and type the password in the server restarts.
