Event ID: 4318 Source: WINS
WINS could not start due to a missing or corrupt database. Restore the database using WINS Manager (or winscl.exe found in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit) and restart WINS. If WINS still does not start, begin with a fresh copy of the database. To do this: 1) Delete all the files in the %%SystemRoot%%\system32\WINS directory. NOTE: If the WINS database file (typically named wins.mdb) is not in the above directory, check the registry for the full filepath. Delete the .mdb file. NOTE: If jet*.log are not in the above directory, check the registry for the directory path. Delete all log files 2) Restart WINS.
