Show us an example of what you are typing when the error occurs.

It happens when I type anything to do with net.exe such as

net.exe start

it is definatly the right directory beacause i can find the file in the right location but it still gives me the error.

When you type this can you copy and paste the text from the cmd window?

Code: Select all
net start

Hi becka2kaii,

Sometimes, files get corrupted during installation, you could copy the program from a working machine to test.
Make sure the Service Packs are equal if possible.
In that case it is likely more files are corrupted.

Hi, I'm also having this problem, it's happened literally overnight. I have a batch file that runs every day that stops/starts the Exchange Information Store.

Now these net commands return the same error as the OP's

I'll be keeping my eye on this!

FWIW when I run 'net start' the following is returned:

System Error 2 has occurred
The system cannot find the file specified

I wonder if it is an issue with registering 'dbgproxy' as listed below.

Hmm, my machine doesn't and has never had Visual Studio installed. Do you think that matters?

Probably yeah. Can you run SFC the system file checker?

This is why I never allow Windows to do any patch updates or even notifications until
I create a fresh Partition Image backup ready to neutralise the inevitable Microsoft disasters.

Sorry, I didn't get notification of reply since my last post.

The machine I'm running is SBS 2003 SP2, without automatic updates enabled. So no changes have been made that way. I'll have to look into what ramifications running SFC would have. I don't want to break anything without a back-up plan first!

[edit]

I can't run SFC remotely, so I'll have to wait until Monday when I can get into the server room.
