Hi All,

I was doing some work on a customers Small business Server 2011;

* Installed Microsoft Web Installer PHP
* Uncheck IPv6
* Plugged in an external USB hard drive

Now the computer gets stuck at applying computer settings.

I've unplugged the USB drive and logged in via safemode to readd IPv6.  But the server still just hangs at applying computer settings.

I tried to uninstall Microsoft Web Installer PHP, but it returns the following error;

installer service could not be accessed

Any suggestions?

Is this server is properly booting in safe mode ?

if yes then Disable start value from 1 to 4

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\IPSec

and then boot server again in normal mode

1. Open Registry Editor and then the registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters\

2. Double-click DisabledComponents entry. Create this entry if required.

3. In Create the new entry DWORD (32-bit) Value.

4. Type DisabledComponents, and then press ENTER.

5. Double-click to open DisabledComponents. Enter the value as "ffffffff" and then click OK.

I've not done this one.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\IPSec

Is there a way to uninstall the software in safemode

I installed Microsoft Web Installer PHP, which installed a few things.  I've removed it, but the server still wont start.

Sorted the boot issue by uninstalling all of the software (C++ thingy was causing the issue).


I added a key called MSIService with a default value of Service to
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Network\

rebooted into safemode with networking and uninstalled them all.

Everything appears to be working, but no emails coming through.  I'll raise another question for help on that.
