    I cannot turn on the file sharing service in vista.. in the usual graphical
    area.. it prompts for admin to continue.. then comes back with neither on or
    off selected..

    If i try to turn on the Server service.. i get "error 1068: The dependency
    service or group failed to start"

    I've also noticed eventid 7000 in the system log: "The srv service failed
    to start due to the following error srv is not a valid win32 application"

    This one makes no sense to me...

    Any ideas on a fix?
    Thanks much
