    I have a machine running VNC, a 2000 pro box I believe, and I am having trouble accessing it.

    I have tried restarting the vnc service with a remote mmc to services, but I get the following error:

    Code:
    Could not start the VNC Server Version 4 service on MACHINENAME

    Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion

    and then

    Code:
    Unable to query status for service VNC Server Version 4. The remote connection on MACHINENAME has been broken.
    Code:
    The system encountered the following error while reading the list of services on MACHINENAME

    Error 6: The handle is invalid.

    Then all the services disappear.

    I have also tried:

    Code:
    psexec \machinename cmd
    net start winvnc4

    which gives the following error

    Code:
    The service is not responding to the control function.

    Then I get

    Code:
    Error communicating with PsExec service on soupdragon2
    The specified network name is no longer available

    Any ideas how I can fix this and get my vnc back short of rebooting? (people are using this with long running processes so I am not in such an easy position to reboot)
