The server service on my Windows 2003 R2 (SP2) server gives the following error when I try to start it:  Error 5: Access is denied.  It is set to logon as the Local System Account.  The Event log gives a System event ID of 7023.

The service is the Server service.

When I run sc query server it returns "The specified service does not exist as an installed service."

Is my syntax correct?

Is your server patch up to date?

Are you by any chance infected by malware/virus?

Did you try opening an elevated cmd prompter:  

Windows key + r

Type: runas /user:administrator "cmd.exe"

Enter the administrator password and then...

Type: net start server

You also can navigate to the registry entry:

Windows key + r

Type: regedit

Navigate: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanServer

Right-click --------> Select Permissions
Make sure that the administator has "Full Control" and "Read" Permissions.


or you can export this key from a working computer and import it into the malfunctioning computer.

I guess a virus is possible, but the AV hasn't picked up anything.

Tried running from elevated cmd prompt.  Same error.

Checked permissions on the registry entry you mentioned.  Everything looks fine.

Does this service have an dependancies? Have you tried to reboot into safe mode and see if the service starts that way?

You may also want to unregister the service and then register the service again.

No dependencies.  How do I un/re-register the service?

Sorry, got called away for a couple days.

Not sure what actually fixed the issue, but the server was a bit behind on Microsoft updates and once I processed them all the issue went away.  

Thanks for all the help and comments though.  Not really sure what to do as far as points go?  Any help there?
