    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:

    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

    Unable to query status for service VNC Server Version 4. The remote connection on MACHINENAME has been broken.
    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:

    psexec \machinename cmd
    net start winvnc4

    which gives the following error

    The service is not responding to the control function.

    Then I get

    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)
