Programs not starting anymore on SBS 2003 server

Last Modified: 2015-04-05
Hi there,
I have running a SBS2003 server with a client. This morning I tried to add a laptop to the domain, but it gave an error not finding a good DNS server. So I logged in on the server to see what's wrong with the DNS, but found out the DNS management console is not starting. So I tried services.msc, but that doesn't do anything also. Then I tried to run msc directly from system32 without luck too. I checked auto updates and it seems to have installed en bunch of security upgrades since last time I added computers to the domain (about 3 weeks ago).
So I wanted to remove these updates, but find out that the program manager isn't starting also. So I am a little bit stuck now.
