Without the Workstation service starting the computer is almost useless. No
networking, can't install SpywareDoctor (needs to update itself), Can't
install Belkin Easy Transfer
Cable for Windows 7 (requires Crypto service which depends on workstation).
Can't even look at events.
Can't burn CD's.
Trying to start the workstation service service gives:
Could not start the Workstation service on Local Computer.
Error 2: The system could not find the file specified
I tried sfc /scannow. It took all afternoon but did not help the issue.
My only recourse to migrate to a new Windows machine is to hang the HDD on
machine and burn CD's there/
Any suggestions would be welcome.
