    "Server" service stopping

    We have a Win 2003 server R2 Standard SP1 running SQL 2005 and only serving a few machines for the cashless catering system (7 tills and 2 PCs). Yesterday, the backoffice system wouldn't run from the client machine, so we took a look and found the folder shares on the server were gone. We needed things in a hurry so rebooted the server (long overdue anyway - its usually solid as a rock, so no need) and all was well.

    Come in this morning, and the problems back. Shares are gone again - can't even get the share tab on the folder properties dialogue. A quick sniff in services and google shows the "Server" service has stopped. Its set to Auto, and started fine after the last reboot. Still trauling the event logs, but none of the error events relate to the service. Restarted the service with no problems.

    Wondering if any of you with infinitley more Server 2003 and SQL knowledge than me might have seen it before, or know what might cause such a fundamental service to shut down?

    I did a quick search of the forums, but "server service" returns more than one or two results! Apologies if I'm oblivious to a previous thread on this.

    Any help gratefully recieved...

    Doesn't seem to be on the server, but is on a couple of the tills

    Seems the catering system domain doesn't get the same care and attention as the main system...

    Thanks for the headsup and tools. Now, did someone call the exterminator...?
