Windows 2k8 R2: Not genuine anymore

Hi

The server was running fine for many months but now suddenly it shows that the OS is not genuine anymore. The Software Protection service is not running. And I can not start it anymore

It is in German but it basically says: Cannot start Software Protection because The system cannot find the file specified.

I suspect it has something to do with wrong permissions / acl on C:\Windows\System32
