Thanks for the reply Dmitry. Yes that is the one we have been using for years. The latest version says it has been tested on 2008 Server, but it doesn't want to play well with our installation. I'll check with the author(s) and see if they have any other ideas. I am an admin on the server, so I would have thought it would install and run as a service on 2008 like it did on 2003, but apparently Microsoft has outsmarted me again!

Thanks again,
