Error 3417 (SQL Server 2008) unable to start service..


My sql server 2008i stopped working due to error 3417. I tried different solutions as provided by msdn forums and other sites such as compression attributes, network service to be added on security and change log-on to local system and restoring my master db using cmd. All did'nt work.

I ended up backing up all my databases, uninstalling the database service but retaining the other features such as business intelligence studio, IDE tools and etc. Then, re installing the database services w/ same credentials as before.
