Windows 2000 Server Problem

1152 Views 5 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  dvd77
Approxmately 1-2 weeks ago, these problems showed up. Anyone have any suggestions? It is Windows 2000 Server, SP4.

Symantec Autoprotect disables itself randomly

I cannot navigate to the Windows Update page, I can by IP Address, but it crashes when it try to scan for updates

The Windows Installer service does not start, and any applications that use the service don't install (ie MS Antispyware)

Device Manager crashes

My tape drive in Veritas shows up as paused (don't know if this is directly related, but what started all the problems)

I have done the following --

Ad-Aware scan
Spybot Search and Destroy scan
Ewido online scan
Panda Software online scan (Runs for 10 seconds and then closes all IE windows)
Symantec Liveupdate and then full virus scan (Multiple scans)
Online virus scan via Symantec

Problem may be Veritas/Symantec combo

See MS KB Q830265, as it discusses problems that are caused by 3rd party filter drivers, including :grin: Symantec and Veritas filter drivers.

Of course, they recommend applying the latest updates from those vendors.

Good luck...
have you checked your logs? Right click on my computer>manage>event viewer. Look for any errors.
