It's Not enough information. Please post the error  from the event viewer as it will hold more information as to what the problem is

open Event Viewer (from windows admin tools) and look for problems having to do with CF Server.

First thing to check is whether the executible file exists.  in services, right click the Coldfusion server service and click properties.  

What is the path?  can you copy and paste here and also confirm you can find that file.

There's multiple errors for the server... do they all say the same thing?

It looks like you have several errors - not just for ColdFusion!

What's up with your machine?

Have you restarted?

Installed anything lately? Around the time of when this started happening?

Maybe restore to an earlier point in time?

That's a good point from @dgrafx re system restore.  May be the quickest and easiest fix :)

Problem Solved.

Did a comparison between this machine and an old one with coldfusion 9 for
C:\ColdFusion9\runtime\bin

Turns out machine with problem did not have jrun.exe - although it did have jrunsvc.exe

I copied the jrun.exe to problem machine and - did a restart and got the attached message from AVG !!  AVG percieved jrun as a threat and wanted to delete it.  I told it not to delete the file and .... problem solved.

Funny how AVG decided to declare this file a threat. The older machine also has AVG and has not deleted jrun.exe.

Many thanks to you all for taking the time on this for me.  Best wishes for new year.
