Here is an update. Freshly re-formatted machine with Win7 installed was
joined domain and it again got corrupted. 2 of the machines which were
running fine till yesterday after restoration have refused to start this

Although my suspicion is on AppData folder, I can not logically agree to
it that user's profile data can cause this kind of an issue.

Any guidance on this please.

Thanks & regards,
