    the system according to trend micro, NOD, AVG, Norton and mcafee is free of viruses

    also MS AntiSpyware, Adaware, spybot, Highjack-this, all report clean.

    Was the system before repair updated to SP2 and disk used for repair was not SP2?

    If so you need to update the system to SP2 or some services will be misconfigured.

    Also, here is a list of the defaults for services.

    it was an SP2 install and also an SP2 repair disk too. so not too sure what is going on. i contacted our MS rep but they are usually no help

    Well then go through the list of defaults at the link in my other post as one or more services which the ones that will not start depend on may not be running.
