It looks like one of the patches knocked DCOM from out underneath the server; dcomcnfg has no objects in the computers folder; thats probably not good...

I've uninstalled the patches; first KB969947 then the other two; after both reboots I experienced the exact same issues with configuring patches and the underlying problem still exists.

comment Windows Server 2008 Services won't start after patch
i've just got the server down for a backup at the moment; but thats the thing; where normally there would be those logs regarding service start fails; there is literally nothing. With the exception of Group Policy (likely failing due to prerequisites) and KDC all service starts fail silently. I'll be searching the patches as soon as I can find the logs for them.

sorry; should have been clearer. MSTSC == RDP client, and unfortunately the comments regarding me been unable to stop endpoint at this point are still true.
