Computer browser service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    We have an Xp sp3 pro machine being a little weird.

    Suddenly today outlook won't connect to the server as it say it can't find the server. I did a virus scan and all seems fine. I noticed the computer browser service was not started (not sure if outlook would need this to run?). I checked that server and workstation services were running which were all fine. When I go to start the service I get

    The specified service does not exist as an installed service.

    I have check and it's set up use  svchost.exe -k netsvcs as expected.

    Can anyone give me some pointers what I should be looking for here.

  • Have you been in event viewer yet, I'd imagine this would throw some type of errors elsewhere as well.
