When the Winsock Proxy Service tries to start, it may fail with the following error message:
NOTE: This generates an event in the Event Log.
The Winsock Proxy Service has been configured to try to startup as an account other than System. The Winsock Proxy Service must log on as the System account. This error can also occur if the System account does not have correct permissions.
Change the startup configuration in the Services applet in Control Panel to Log on as the System account. Make sure that the System account has full control for the \Msp path and the \Inetpub path.
On Microsoft Small Business Server, make sure that the System account has full control for %SystemDrive%\SmallBusiness\Clients\MS\Proxy.
