SBS2008 RRAS service causes other servcies to crash

Would be VERY grateful if there is an expert eye that can be cast over 
my problem.

I have an SBS2008 server which has been working fine for about 3 months. 
Just before christmas RRAS stopped So I manually started it and it 
stopped again.

Then had a critical email notice saying all these services stopped
The Application Experience service has been stopped.
The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service has been stopped.
The Network Policy Server service has been stopped.
The IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules service has been stopped.
The IP Helper service has been stopped.
The Server service has been stopped.
The User Profile Service service has been stopped.
The Task Scheduler service has been stopped.
The Secondary Logon service has been stopped.
The System Event Notification Service service has been stopped.
The Shell Hardware Detection service has been stopped.
The Windows Update service has been stopped.

So I rebooted in safe mode and have disabled RRAS and alls well except 
my users who use VPN are not happy.

I cannot work out where to go from here. I have run the SBS2008 BPA 
which just tells me one or two minor things as follows

SBS2008 BPA OUTPUT******************************************************

There are 7 things and the only VPN related item is
VPN Port (TCP 1723) Status Error.The system process should listen on 
Port 1723, but that port is owned by the process. I think the process 
name should be in the owned by the PROCESSNAME process but there is 
nothing there. I did a portqry and no process has that port that I could 

Other BPS items are
Exchange with Service Pack 1
Free space is low (25Gb)
Local activation permission to the IIS WAMREG AdminService Required
The Companyweb value does not exisit in the BackConnectionHostnames 
registry key
Windows SBS2008 is running on a virtual machine. I know its not 
supported but Im not using any com ports or USB so cant think that is a 

Can anyone save me from a rebuild? Can I reinstall the RRAS? I ran the 
VPN wizard, but that just enabled the RRAS service and gave me the above 
problems again.

macro causing two spreadsheets to display
Hello: I doubt it. But, I want to check to see if there is a possibility that this issue is being caused directly by some sort of issue with SmartList. Recently, I came across a posting that mentioned that SmartList was causing Excel spreadsheets to print twice. I have a client that is dumping data from SmartList to Excel. Then, she runs a macro in Excel that formats the spreadsheet. On her workstation, upon the activation of this macro, the spreadsheet is duplicated. Two copied of this spreadsheet appear instead of, well, just one. This problem is more of a nuisance than anything...

Grinning Shark "Watch Your Back" Crashing Outlook 2002
Seems that this add-in is crashing Outlook 2002-SP2. Once in a while Outlook will identify it by name as preventing it from starting. The product's support web page at is giving some bizarre error messages, and all email to the author's domain is bouncing (it's the author's way of eliminating spam, by forcing customers to use his web site). All that's running at the author's web site now is the download and register functions, but no support. Does anything know if the author of Watch Your Back is still around, and how to contact him?

Service time billing
Can MSCRM be adapted to a service organization that primarily bills for time on an as-provided basis? When resolving a case, I see that the billable time is shown as the total of all activity time.

Also, can information, such as usernames and passwords be stored in the account record but secured from users that don't have sufficient privileges? Thank you, Rick S.

How to find file causing backup failure Access Denied 0x80070005?
Apparently at least one "Document" file on my Vista laptop is causing File Backup to fail "Access Denied" 0x80070005.

To work around this, do not select D:\ as a backup source. Also, go to System Protection in Control Panel and make sure that D:\ is not enabled for restore points." This is on an external disk so none of that stuff would seem to apply. If I unselect &...
