  • This sounds like a candidate for a complete system rebuild.  I would save all of your important data from the machine then rebuild it using the installation media you should have been provided.

    BTW, this forum is topic based and is for discussing System Center Service Manager issueswhich could be a possible reason why you haven't received a response.



    Thanks, Mark
