First, has anything changed since the last time the services did start?

I have had instances of this occuring when a specific service fails to start and bogs down the remainder of the services from starting. To be exact I had BMC Patrol Agent sucking up 100% of the cpu when it attempted to start causing the remainder of services to die. The solution, if this is indeed the problem, is to disable the failing service and restart the machine. The quickest way to see if a service is failing to load is to look at the Event logs.

But you need to answer these questions as well:

Has anything been installed on the system that might have caused this?

What Service Pack are you on?

The only time the service database is locked is during boot up. This means that one of your services got stuck on boot, and you system has never accepted that the system has finished booting, therefore the service database is locked. Try this, look at the services that haven't started. sence you can't use the control panel, you will have to edit the registry settings under hkeylocalmash\system\currentcontrolset\services and try disableing the last service to boot. Useing w2k is the easest way of determining what has hung, as it will show in the remote management "Starting..." for the service. As long as it isn't a needed service, then things will go your way. As was said, look for anything that you recently installed or any changes.If you haven't logged onto the servers at the control panel, you can reboot, press the space bar when prompted, hit L and go to the last known good configuration. As long as there wasn't a corupted file, this will at least fix the registry if it isa reg entry or newly installed software. Then, you might try to install the 6a service pack to fix any corupted files. Hope this helps,
