    I am a SQL Server DBA and I have a home server I use for independent projects
    and testing. I am having a huge problem as something is wrong with my
    registry/windows installation.

    I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 and it has run fine for over a year and all
    of a sudden a few weeks ago, I get an error when I try to open "Services" or
    "Event Viewer". Also, when I double click Add/Remove Programs it just does
    nothing. I assume the registry has been compromised but this is out of my
    realm of knowledge.

    When I attempt to open Serivces Or Even Viewer I get the following error

    mmc.exe - Unable to locate component
    The application has failed to start because oleacc.dll was not found.
    Re-installing the application may fix the problem.

    I am at a loss as where to start tracking this down if I can't see the event
    viewer. I at one time had AVG Free installed as well as SpyBot search and
    destroy which is about the time this started.

    WHat I am looking for is a way to track this down without hacing to
    re-install the OS because I have everything just like I want it with my SQL
    installations and they work fine as does the web server.

    Any help would be greatly apreciated.
