Re: protexis service continually stopping and giving error on server 2003

I had a very similar issue with the protexis service that might just be what you are experiencing. On a Vista workstation, there was file file named 'program' with no file extension in the root directory of c:\.

 

The presence of this file completely prevented Protexis from starting, delete the file and all is well.

 

The file was actually scan results from an Anti-Virus program. Checking out the Microsoft KB, a file with this name can apparently cause many strange issues with windows.
