    Win2003 Ent Server, Exch2003 SP1. Service Pack 1 copied over local server.
    I launch Service Pack and the following message appear:

    "The file c:\windows\system32\drivers\tcpip.sys" is open or in use by
    another application. Close all other applications and then click Retry."

    Eventvwr error is displayed below.
    I alredy restarted the server, no improvement. There is no application
    running on the server (other than File System AV which I attempted to stop
    and that didn't help either).

    Please advise how can I fix this ?
