From a newsgroup post: "My SBS was running W2K SP2. After I installed Exchange SP2, three Exchange services failed to start on boot up. It was basically the Exchange System Attendant which was the problem and when that fails to start 2 other dependant services fail. If I started the services manually then it all seems to work fine, but that was not really encouraging if I had to do this every time the server was rebooted. I recently had the occasion to talk at length with an SBS support rep from MS PSS. He told me that he completely uninstalls his anti-virus program before installing service packs, hotfixes, etc. This seems a little extreme to me, but they apparently have a huge database of problems that are caused by anti-virus programs interfering with other processes. Following his advise I uninstalled my antivirus namely NAV and reapplied SP2. After this everything was back on the right track".
