This is the error in the even log http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;840686&FR=1&PA=1&SD=HSCH and here seems to be a somewhat related solution off the MS site. It is NOT a fix though because it's talking about folders I don't have. Specifically I have no "%windir%\system32\ias\" folder. And I really doubt most people do as the fix is specifically for these systems. I have XP professional but on an AMD processor. Anyway, I have no such folder. I checked the service dependencies and they've all be been met. It doesn't require much as far as I can see. Anyone have any ideas?
