Safeboot 4.2 corrupt servnt.exe service

Hi Guys,


We host a safeboot 4.2 server for around 200 users


Recently users have been unable to communicate up to the server, As a result users laptops are now starting to lock out as communication has to happen every 60 days


We have tracked the problem to be a service which will not start


Service is - "SafeBoot Communications" Located at C:\PROGRA~1\SBAdmin\SERVNT.EXE


When we try to start this service we get this error - "Could not start the Safeboot Communications Server service on local computer. Error 997: Overlapped I/O operation is in progress


Could anyone advise if they have had or know what this problem is and a possible fix for this?


Any advise would be great as i have around 20 days before all machines are locked out of safeboot.


Many thanks
