I have ArcGIS 10 installed on my computer connected remotely to my companies license server. Everything has worked fine for months, but within the last few days no geoprocessing tool will run. The results window just shows the dreaded 99998:Unexpected Error. Looking further into the log file I get this:

<Msg time='2012-10-31T22:33:50' type='ERROR' code='5000' target='GPJobServer.GPJobServer' thread='3872'>Job Catalog initialization failed. Directory C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.0\ArcToolbox\server\system\jobreg\ not found.</Msg>

Reason for failure: Operation on file C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.0\ArcToolbox\server\user\cfg\GPJobServer.GPJobServer.cfg failed. File not found.</Msg>

Does anyone perchance know what might be going on? Where did the jobreg file go? Do I need to reinstall the software? This all happened completely randomly, and I never touched any of the AppData files, nor the Program Files.

Thanks.
