SP3 was already installed before I started
I just noticed that with all the backup services stopped the server's CPU is running at 100%
I'm going to look further into this and see if that's the issue, if it's not then I'll try installing the hotfixes again and post the errors
looks like my problems are related to Symantes Endpoint protection,
I am unsuprised really...
I seem to have more headaches with the symantec software than any virus or data loss situation has ever given me
